I've found myself in a situation where I know the power company is going to cut power to my house for a full day (7am-8pm) and it just happens to fall on a day where I need to do my sales reports (I get emailed the info, then I spend about 3hours on the notebook, then I give a 40min skype presentation and need to email my final report out) so I need power during this black out.
I have two batteries for my notebook which are fully charged and can last me 7hrs so I'm not worried about keeping that running, my modem on the other I need to have running for the emailing (20-30 mins all up) and the skype meeting.
I was told a UPS could be what I need but I'm reading the specs and it seems UPS only have about 8mins of life in them during a blackout (?) Is there a UPS that will keep things running for 1-1.5hrs (or more) during a blackout? All that it's going to power is the telephone/modem.
Unfortunately heading to the office is out since it's located in a different country
Is UPS the right choice? and what one would be good for me?
