How Can I Guard My Home Theater Against Power Outages?

Episode 1786 (40:00)

John from Solana Beach, CA
CyberPower 1500VA

John is having issues with power outages and is worried that it will brick his devices. Leo advises getting an uninterruptable power supply. That will guard against not only outages, but the power surges that arrive after the power comes back on. Leo likes TripLite. But there's also APS. John will want to avoid relying solely on power strips. They don't really do anything. But a UPS will preserve power until he can turn on the gas generator, or unplug devices. Costco has a CyberPower 900w UPS that does power conditioning with ten plugsĀ for $129. That's a good deal.
