A guy in a flight sim forum asked us this below and I just wonder if any Bleeping members have got any advice I could pass on to him? Thanks-
I live out in the country and we face power failures fairly regularly . I have a 7500 watt generator with a special panel BUT I require a minimum of 2 to 3 minutes to get the generator started and have power for the computer and the house utilities etc...
Presently,when the power stops, my computer stops as well until I restore power via my generator.
Any suggestions as too options I could look at to supply power during the time that the power goes off and I get my generator going ???
Someone mentioned "APC battery pack" could be installed to cover the few minutes required to get my generator going.... this way my computer would still be operating thus giving me the required time to shut down my computer properly etc....or simply continue working .
The whole point is for me to be able to shut down my computer properly and avoid power surge
