Schneider Electric is enabling gamers to protect themselves from errant power spikes and other nefarious electrical mishaps as it unveils the APC Back-UPS Pro Gaming UPS, coming to stores in October.
Designed specifically for gamers, and with all your RGB enabled devices in mind, the APC Back-UPS Pro Gaming UPS is the brand new Uninterruptable Power Supply from Schneider Electric that we first heard about back in August. The new gaming focused UPS does not only offer traditional power protection for your gaming electronics, it also bundles in a number of features specifically tailored to the needs of gamers. As well as protecting your own hardware during power irregularities, the APC Back-UPS Pro Gaming UPS features 12 customizable RGB LED lights enabling gamers to match each and every unique gaming PC and console designs.
As well as looking the part, the new instalment in the APC brand of UPS devices is packed with tech underneath the hood. More than just a go faster battery, the UPS Pro Gaming UPS uses Sine wave battery backup power and AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) that delivers the smoother electrical current required by sensitive electronics protecting against power irregularities and resulting glitches during an outage. It also features the following:
- Six battery back-up outlets with surge protection that send power instantly to sensitive electronics, such as an Xbox, PlayStation, PCs, TVs, or routers/modems, during a power loss
- Four additional surge-only outlets to protect against unsafe power surges and “hard shutdowns” that can permanently damage equipment
- Three easy-access front USB ports to recharge devices, like a gaming headset and cellphone.
- A patented reactor circle which provides the status of remaining power, surges, dips, power outages, and building wiring faults visible from every angle.
If you’re looking to keep your next-gen console or power-hungry new GPU protected and keep yourself in the game then the APC Back-UPS Pro Gaming UPS is available in two colors and up for pre-order on major retailers now. Check out more over on the official Schneider Electric APC website now.
