APC UPS for Gaming

Finish the fight! Even when darkness falls

Whether questing to be Elden Lord in the Lands Inbetween, beast-hunting in the streets of Old Yarnham, leading the pack in a blistering race, or waiting to capitalise on a punishing combo, you’ll love the peace of mind that your gaming setup will be able to provide high-performance power protection.

With the world’s most trusted brand of power protection at your back, your gaming rigs, consoles and any streaming devices you may have running at the time aren’t vulnerable to the kinds of power outages that can put a put a serious dent in your gaming.

Just because your character may be tarnished, doesn’t mean your gaming experience or content stream need be.

Avoid Unwarranted penalties

As well as frustration and annoyance, a sudden disconnection mid-game can sometimes invoke penalties, especially within a PvP (Player vs Player) game mode. What started as a system to counter the ‘rage quitters’ out there, who quit the game rather than face a loss, can be an extra punishment when a power spike or failure causes you to leave the game server.

And in other PvE (Player vs Environment) games that rely on connection to an online server, a forced disconnect can also mean the loss of a large chunk of loot, gaming time, progress and any experience gained.


So… What is a Gaming UPS. And why do gamers need one?

UPS is short for ‘Uninterruptible Power Supply’ and serves one main purpose: back up gaming power with surge protection.

A UPS will instantly send power to your Xbox, PlayStation, and/or PC when your home loses power and defends against unsafe spikes in the level of electricity coming into your home that could irreversibly damage your expensive gaming equipment.

A UPS is an essential piece of gaming gear that will protect your gaming setup from damages and unexpected disconnect so you have time to save your game or finish your online match to avoid drop-out penalties.
