Back-up

Traveler, Staples

  • Excerpt: This is the second backup I have purchased in the past 5 years. I had a difficult time getting plugs into 2 of the outlets. I was thinking that I might get shocked but they were just very tight.

2 out of 3 not working

erob, TigerDirect.com
14 May 2011
  • Summary: I have purchased a total of 3 of these units because the first one saved my computer equipment from a lightening surge..but it must have fried and I can't revive it. I replaced it and bought another for my office, within days one of the new ones went out and would not come back on. I will return it to the manufacturer. They should last more than one power incident.
