Millions of gamers become disconnected from their console every year due to power outages.

Loot, ranks, and progress are all gone without a moment’s notice. All that time and effort wasted!

What’s more, your game has no way to distinguish between you losing power or quitting, meaning if you play ranked matched you may end up with penalties. Or worse, banned!

How can you stop this?

Easy – an APC UPS! Schneider Electric’s range of UPS, or Uninterruptible Power Supply, will back up your gaming power with surge protection to keep you gaming no matter what. If the UPS detects power loss or unsafe levels of electricity it will switch your connected devices from the mains power to its battery backup. This seamless switch avoids any power loss and protects your equipment against potentially irreversible damage.
