Keep your devices and files powered and safe with the back-up battery and surge protector. Amazon

This back-up battery and surge protector will be there for you during your city’s next power outage, letting you charge devices even in the case of disaster.

With this surge protector, you don’t have to worry about your computer losing unsaved changes in that Word document. You will be able to send a series of “all good” messages even if your devices are dying and power it out. Have plenty of time to catch up on news or report back to family with the BE600M1 UPS’ back-up battery which gives an “uninterruptible power supply” of up to four hours. The backup power also ensures your network is up and running—as are the smart products in your home that depend on a network to function.

Five of the seven outlets use the back-up battery power. The other two outlets just have surge protection. It also includes one USB charging port for your phone. It is Energy Star certified—meaning it meets standards that are set by the EPA or the US Department of Energy. $45.
