When the power suddenly goes out at home one of the first realisations in a modern household is that you have lost WIFI access.
The lower end of the fallout of no power means simply that everyone is cut off from using the internet. If you were in the middle of uploading or downloading something, or sending an email, this can be inconvenient. If you have children their frustrations will become quickly evident!
On the higher end of the scale, if your telecommunications are reliant on the NBN you will be without phone access. In an emergency, this could have severe consequences.
In the event of a long-term power outage there isn’t a lot you can do to preserve your internet access but by simply plugging in a small UPS device, you can buy yourself a couple of hours on average. This will give you time with mobile devices to finish what you were doing online or give the kids some extended youtube time!
The PowerShield DC Mini UPS is a unique, simple product that has been designed to handle small power devices such as modems and routers. Recently, Australian Computer Magazine voted the product their Recommended Product and gave it 4 out of 5 stars in their rating.
“While just about any device can be plugged into a UPS, it’s not a very efficient way to handle small power users such as a modem or router. The PowerShield DC Mini takes a different approach – just aiming to provide UPS functionality for 12V devices.” (APC Magazine, August 2017).
