Last week, ASUS and Schneider Electric partnered to bring uninterrupted Internet to Filipinos with ASUS’ wireless routers and APC by Schneider Electric’s CP12010LI uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

Unexpected power outages happen and put our work and productivity at risk. Worse, it can also damage electronics. This is where UPS come into play. In conjunction to providing continuous power after a brownout, most UPS products have an AVR feature that corrects damaging voltage fluctuations. Paired with select ASUS routers, these devices can keep you online even when the power goes out.

Aptly named Back-UPS Connect, this UPS provides power to selected ASUS routers up to 150 minutes, allowing you to save important work. It has an exceptionally small footprint that permits for a lightweight, compact and easy to setup design, and as a DC adaptor, it provides up to 85% power efficiency which allows utility savings and heat reduction that promotes a longer component life.

Starting July 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019, consumers who will purchase select ASUS routers with an APC by Schneider Electric Back-UPS Connect will be eligible for a PHP 200.00 discount on the miniUPS.
