Although you could easily spend more on a UPS, you really have no reason to if you need only basic, noncritical protection and a limited amount of power.

When we tested the Cyber Power CP685AVR alongside its closest competitor from APC, the APC BE650G1 Back-UPS, the Cyber Power lasted longer and stayed truer to its stated rating, but the difference was less than five minutes of uptime on average—59.6 minutes of power versus 55.8.

It’s easy to set up, it has some of the most positive user reviews in its class, and it’s the most affordable unit we found.

We also like the APC BE650G1 Back-UPS, if it’s available for less.

The two systems even have the same three-year warranty.

The Cyber Power is our top pick, and it’s often a few dollars cheaper, but if you can get the APC BE650G1 for less, it will serve you just as well.

If your needs are on that scale, you might want to consider a home generator, or a battery system designed for off-grid power.

Similarly, if you’re trying to figure out how to power electronics far from the grid, companies such as Goal Zero and Renogy offer a more appropriate option.

In our tests it provided enough power to keep the average cable or DSL modem and Wi-Fi router running for an hour, which means you can stay online to while away the time while the lights are off—or, in a real emergency, keep your digital phone service powered so you can reach the outside world.

The size of an overgrown surge protector, the CP685AVR is small enough to hide in the same corner as your networking gear, and since it has surge protection built in, you’ll have one less thing to buy.

When you’re deciding what size UPS you need, you’re actually assessing two different things: power output and battery capacity.
