Things to Consider Before Buying UPS

  1. Focus on the UPS Runtime
  2. What is the main purpose of using UPS?

    Well, the main purpose of UPS is to provide an uninterrupted electricity supply for your gaming computer. As you already know, a power cut can damage the motherboard of your computer.

    If the UPS doesn't have enough battery capacity to run the computer, will it be able to save your computer?

    So first you must check the run time of the UPS.  Generally, a UPS should contain at least 1 hr battery run time ability.

    By the way, you can choose a UPS which will support your computer for 20-30 minutes. You have to remember, your UPS will be used for the smooth transition of electricity during load shedding.

    Because sudden power off can be harmful to the health of your gaming computer.

  3. Calculate the Capacity
  4. With the runtime of your UPS, its capacity is also an important factor.

    The capacity of your UPS is determined based on how many devices it can easily use with its battery life.

    Each device consumes a different amount of electricity. Your desktop CPU consumes more electricity than the monitor.

    In the tech market, you can find different models of UPS which come with different capacities. Most common types of UPS have 650VA, 800VA, and 1200VA capacity limits.

    Suppose, you have too many devices like more than one computer, routers, monitors, etc. You should choose that UPS which contains an 800VA+ capacity limit.

  5. Understand Your Need
  6. Before buying any UPS you must determine the reason for buying it.

    UPS are used for home and office for extra electric supply.

    You know that, if you need a UPS for your office you have to choose a high-config UPS. Because there are lots of computers and other devices. So you need additional electricity support.

    But if you think of buying a UPS for your home, you should choose an optimum-level UPS. You don't have too many devices like in the office.  So if you properly analyze your use purposes, you can choose an appropriate UPS.

  7. Check Reliability and Functionality
  8. For any kind of tech product, reliability is one of the biggest issues.

    If you choose an unreliable product from an unauthorized manufacturer, you might face difficulties after purchasing the product.

    So your seller must be trustworthy and authorized. To check the reliability, you must go through the customer reviews. You need to clarify how they think after purchasing UPS from that store.

    From the customer review, you can also check the product quality and performance. After-sales service is also important. The store should also provide at least 1 year of service warranty for the product.

    On the other hand, UPS functionality is essential. Most modern UPS has LED panels for monitoring the battery, voltage, etc. The automatic alert function is very useful. When your UPS reaches the highest load it will automatically confirm it.

Final Words

A sudden power cut or load shedding can badly impact the core components of your gaming computer. One single accident can ruin your whole gaming computer-building effort.

But how can you solve this problem?

The most effective and safe way is to choose a high-quality UPS. In our Walton Digitech store, we have different models of UPS at very affordable prices. We also provide multiple types of computer tech accessories such as USB hubs, pen drives, card readers, printers, etc.
