How would you like to own an uninterruptible power supply which is geared towards helping you save electricity? It’s an interesting concept APC is exploring as it unveils its Back-UPS ES 750 for around $100.
The APC Back-UPS ES 750 lets you plug up to 10 devices into its outlets. Five of these plugs offer battery backup up to 70 minutes in case power fails and all 10 offer surge protection as well. As an eco-friendly device the ES 750 has master/controlled outlets in which the master, sensing a computer has gone into sleep mode or powered off, automatically shuts down the controlled outlets. This in turn powers connected devices, saving money and cutting down on power usage.
The ES 750 is also environmentally friendly in a number of other ways, down to packaging made from recycled materials, and offers an industrial design which cuts down on physical size. It should be available shortly.
