14 I personally have a Cyberpower 1350VA (with fancy LED display to show
15 current load, estimated time remaining, etc.). It is supported by NUT
16 in linux so my box can do a clean shutdown when the UPS battery is
17 running low. Running my big PC (with 7 HDDs RAID) it gives me around
18 30 to 45 minutes of life on battery before the shutdown kicks in. My
19 power outages at my house are generally either <5 seconds, or
20 hours/days with nothing in-between. :)
