How to Use a UPS with Your Mac



+ Add a Comment


It would be nice to get some guidance for main Mac models as well as Mac Pro having different configurations, how to calculate the power computer uses and what UPS is required in order to keep it up for x minutes.

Make sure you buy a UPS with sufficient capacity for your computer. The UPS I bought a few years ago for my Mac mini gave me a few minutes of power, but since I upgraded to a Mac Pro, the UPS isn't powerful enough to provide any time running off the battery.
