A UPS has become very popular in recent years with the rise in load shedding and more power outages occurring. UPS stands for Uninterruptable Power Supply, and the purpose of a UPS is to provide power to your electronic devices without needing to be plugged into a wall socket.

There are so many different types of UPS’s on the market today and it can be tricky in deciding which one is the correct solution for personal or business use. If you are looking to purchase a UPS just for powering up your modem or router or even just charge your cell phone then a smaller and cheaper UPS solution will be suitable for you as this does not require much battery outage from the UPS.

There are also more expensive UPS solutions that are aimed at companies that need to power up more demanding electronic equipment and these UPS devices are usually able to power up an entire network or keep all your services running if there is a power outage. Having a UPS today is so important in ensuring that your company is able to maintain its productivity. With load shedding now happening more frequently and the recent energy crisis being announced in South Africa, many companies are suffering from loss of revenue due to their companies being so reliant on electricity.

Most people assume that having to spend large amounts of money on a generator or inverter are the only solutions in keeping your devices powered and this is just not the case. A UPS is one of the best solutions for individuals who are looking for a more cost effective solution to keep their devices powered on just for a few hours. If you are looking just to keep your router on and charge your phone so that you have access to WiFI while that lights are out then a cheaper UPS would be perfect for your solutions as these devices are not demanding of power. There are a variety of UPS units on the market in the range of R500 to R2000 that are perfect and Cryptic IT Solutions are a reseller for UPS units therefore we can offer you the most cost effective prices.

Setting up a UPS is also very simple and can be done in just a few seconds.

If you are using a more advances UPS intended to power up more devices then there will be additional steps that will have to  be taken. The way in which a UPS will function is that once the power goes off, the UPS will immediately kick in and keep your devices functioning without any interruptions at all which makes it a very convenient solution for most people who want to keep working without disruptions.
