The power went out? No problem with a quality UPS. We researched over 50 units to determine which 10 best fit the bill to ensure our coverage is comprehensive and unbiased. After hours of testing, we compiled our findings and created our list of the 10 best portable UPS units. Our buying guide provides an overview of what to look for as you shop for an UPS, including a UPS's features, key features, and what to look for as you shop.

Unlike a car or home generator, a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) is a battery that provides power to your electronic items in the event that your home loses power. Using a battery to store power, a UPS will discharge power from your AC outlet to your device when your home loses power. Powering a UPS unit is done by plugging the device into a backup power supply. This backup power supply takes power from your mains, about 240 volts, and converts it to the lower voltage needed to power your electronic devices.

When shopping for a UPS unit, you should carefully consider what devices you need to charge. The wattage of the devices you need to power, the battery life of the devices, and the type of devices you buy (i.e., laptops vs. USB charging devices, game consoles, etc.) are a few factors to determine how many watts you need for your devices. If your devices include more than one CPU, then you will need a UPS that can accommodate multiple CPUs. Additionally, many UPS units come with surge protection built-in, which can protect your devices from surges. Our reviewers identified the best 10 UPS units available based on their price tag, how many watts they output, the quality of the surge protection, the number of USB ports available, and more.
