Our 21st century lives are filled with complexity. That’s why, whenever an innovative product comes along that really and truly simplifies our lives, we take notice. The editors at Edison Awards™ noticed when they named the APC® by Schneider Electric Back-UPS™ Connect BGE50ML UPS to their 2017 Best New Product Award™ winners list.
As an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) designed for homeowners and home office workers, the product has a battery that provides power to the attached critical electronic devices when the power goes out. Power outages happen quite often, ranging from brief glitches and interruptions (enough to freeze up your modem) to long-lasting storm-induced blackouts. No power means no internet. In essence, you are cut off from the outside world for personal or work communication. Having backup power at your disposal ensures you can receive weather updates, make phone/video calls, check e-mail, stream movies, continue gaming, maintain home automation/wireless security connectivity, and, in general, stay connected.
The perfect tool for keeping connected

Most UPS designs targeted for the home market are optimized for larger loads, and are overkill when keeping something like a modem, router or a phone charger alive during power glitches. With the lithium-ion battery, this UPS (50 watts capacity) can provide 2.5 hours of backup power to a home or small business network. Read more
