Term Definition
Uninterruptible Power Supply

An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a separate, external battery backup that kicks-in if the power surges or goes out for a short amount of time, and also helps protect against power surges and spikes from the wall. A UPS allows for one to save their work and safely shut off their PC in the case of a power outage.
