They seem to vary hugely in price but you can pick up a stand alone one for around £100.


The problem with the domestic ones is they don't last long. I don't have one on my PC anymore because of the expense and limited life. I did try a significantly more expensive commercial one but it still wasn't up to keeping my PC going (750w PSU) and it was also really noisy (fan going most of the time). I suppose spending even more would have solved the problem, but then that would be beyond the parameters of my risk/reward assessment.

I have one on my PC and NAS drives - (UPS that is) not an expensive one, but is does link into the PC using Powerchute - funnily enough, it came in last night just before 10 for 5 seconds. Electrical noise being the issue - affected the lights in the house, but not much else.

I had to Google that Mick!


We have them on our PC's at work because we get a few power cuts, and it's saved us from some very annoying situations.   I've no idea on price of these UPS units though, so might not be a viable option.

I have been enjoying a more productive time on photoshop  recently. That was until my wife unplugged my Mac thinking it was her phone charger!
It switched off as I was in the middle of editing a photo.

It was rather annoying!  >:(

UPS  ;)

I was going to take a new picture of my UGears wooden model kit, but . . well, you know, life gets in the way a bit sometimes. So this is one from when I had just finished it last summer.



If you know anyone who likes to make models then I can highly recommend these - all wooden kits, all gear driven in some way or another, well made if a bit fiddly to construct in certain areas, and great fun to make.

This one has an elastic band powered system that drives the car along - the engine is exposed because that is also moving parts - the pistons stroke and the valves open and close while it goes along. It only goes a few feet, but fun.
