More than ever before, having tech that enables us to effectively work, play, and learn from the home environment is crucial. Therefore, one of the best types of gifts you can get for your friends and loved ones this holiday season is a tech accessory that will help them in these areas. In particular, Dell has a fantastic lineup of various tech peripherals that we highly recommend. Here’s a breakdown of all of our favorites among Dell’s offerings.
So, what’s on offer?
First up is Dell’s APC Gaming Back-UPS, which serves both as a battery backup and a surge protector for sensitive gaming hardware. Thanks to the 900W power capacity, this battery backup can power even the beefiest of gaming rigs (including gaming consoles) with ease — and thanks to the fact that the outlets are surge protected, gaming rigs will be protected from sudden power spikes. Considering power surges can occur after electricity is turned on following an outage, this safeguard is invaluable to have in the winter months when storms can often cause outages.
The value of providing backup power and surge protection to expensive gaming hardware is clear since nobody likes to be cut off from their game or have their costly rig ruined, but in truth, the APC Gaming Back-UPS is useful to people who have productivity-focused systems as well. After all, the power cutting out just before you click “Save” on your work documents or other projects is a nightmare. Therefore, regardless of whether someone is gaming or working, this battery backup and surge protection all-in-one is a must-have.
The APC Gaming Back-UPS provides effective and convenient backup power while also safeguarding your hardware against power surges, too.View Deal
