When your power goes out during a storm, the outage typically only lasts for a few hours at most. Those few hours can seem like an eternity when your Wi-Fi goes down, though. Sure you can use your phone and burn through all your mobile data, or you can pick up a simple $55 device that’ll keep your home Wi-Fi network alive the entire time. The APC 600VA UPS Battery Backup & Surge Protector is being discounted right now on Amazon, and it packs more than enough power to keep your modem and router alive during a blackout. It turns on automatically when the power goes out so you don’t have to do a thing, and you can even connect your laptop and mobile devices to recharge them.
