When was the last time LTT made a video about UPSs (Uninterruptible power supplies)

Go to solution Solved by Enderman,

 

Was looking at the UPS category and saw a ton of options and features on them. Asked myself if I knew what they mean. Then though if LTT made a video explaining it .. and all the answers I got were - No.

So if there's a way to pass this along to the team - please do.

Even a video of the three UPS options for low, mid, and top-tier categories would be good.

I mean.... that'd be a pretty boring video eh? 

 

"So here's a UPS.... uh... you plug your computer into it and it gives you X minutes to shut down, or can optionally shut the computer down automatically via usb."

"So uh... here's a nicer UPS.... it can handle more computers or more time...."

"And finally, the top tier UPS.... it can handle more computers or more time."

"See, the computer works when you plug it into it!"

 

No thanks.

No thanks.

As if they didn't do videos on even thinner subjects. 

UPS have more features than just "computer works for a few minutes without mains". Come on.

Not.... really. 

 

I mean there are "true" sine wave kinds, and there are "simulated" sine wave kinds (the former being the better.) I'm sure some of the cheap ones don't have the "auto shut down" features. Also I think some of them switch over to battery when they detect a power failure, while other ones constantly run off of the battery while simultaneously charging the battery, I think the latter is the better.

 

Other than that, it's all about capacity and therefore "how long your computer can be on when the power goes out."

Should be noted that the comments on the video show that the subject wasn't really covered that well. Plus, its a video from April 2016. It's nearly 2019 so some new stuff may have been added.

Nothing has really changed.

It's a UPS, not a phone that gets a new model every year.
