I have heard people saying things about a "UPS" and i really don't know exactly what it is. I have a feeling that it stands for "Unlimited Power Source" is that right? Can someone please explain what it does and what it is used for?

Thanks.

You're close. It's an uninterruptable power supply. Or, more simply, a battery that can power a computer after a power surge/outage long enough to save work and safely shut down.

Oh that makes sense now. After laying in bed for a little i thought "Wow, why would it be an unlimited power supply, that seems stupid, its probably uninterpretable or something.."

Thank you for clearing that up for me.
