A Surge Protector does only one thing – it protects your computer against power surges.

The Top Three Reasons you should have a Battery Backup:

1. Keeps your computer running during a power outage, so you can safely shut it down

2. Supplies Voltage Regulation, providing additional power during voltage drops and evening out any power spikes

3. Contains Auto-Shutdown Software – enabling it to detect a power outage and then safely shut down your computer, even if you are not there
