Whether you game on PC or console, nothing is more frustrating than getting knocked out of your game by an electrical blackout. At best, you’ll get penalized for leaving a multiplayer game. At worst, you’ll see smoke rising from your gear, destroyed from the power surge when the electricity came back on. APC's Gaming UPS is the first 'uninterruptible power supply' built for gaming. It solves this problem, giving gamers peace of mind that they won't get kicked out of a match, lose hours of progress, or get in-game penalties because of a millisecond power surge. Its quietly iconic design has an appropriate presence in any gaming setup
