Over the long term a higher quality unit will be worth the money in a situation like yours where power outages may be frequent, you will need something that is reliable.

So it is by chance of this happening that it goes off.

So there can go 7 days without it going off, maybe a month.

But that's my point! If plugin too much in kills your power you have a MAJOR wiring issue! You need to address that before you worry about hurtin your puter

Is it a fuse blowing in your fuse box? You might be overloading a single zone in your house with too many electronics. My family and I live in an old house now which has that same problem. The microwave and griddle can't be plugged into the same socket or pop there goes a fuse (or circuit breaker if you have a newer house).

Basically what you have to do is figure out how many different, separate circuits your house has. This means that each circuit has its own fuse in the fuse box and can handle the 15 amps at 120 volts (which is the standard for U.S. houses which I'm assuming where you live, sorry if not, thats where I live). Anyway, that seems to be your problem.

One solution is start plugging stuff in to different sockets and see if the power still trips. If it does, then move plug the stuff into another socket until you find the right combination that doesn't flip any circuit breakers.

Here is a website that might help explain to you what circuits in your house might look like.

I remember in Afghanistan the power would go out 6-8 times a day, heck we had our printers on APC's it went out so much.

I'm guessing you were in the U.S. military. Nobody else would spend that much money to put their printers on an apc thumb.gifwink.gifbiggrin.gif

I was in the Marine Corps but somehow missed Afghanistan and Iraq during my tour. The company I work for is in many hotspots world wide and Afghanistan is one of the calmer, tamer one's we are currently in that I had the pleasure of seeing. We work extensively with the military in many countries both US and Foreign.

As a side note, I'm an accountant lol so when people ask what I do they have no idea how exciting accounting can be lol.

Well +rep for one of our military veterans. You guys don't get enough credit for the stuff you do! Everyone just focuses on the stupid brass!!

lol well all I'll say is this, it was a lot easier to work with a warrant officer than your standard officer on many fronts. A warrant officer for the non military folks out there is someone who usually is enlisted that subsequently chooses to be a technical officer in their specialized field were as a commissioned officer has more latitude and isn't always as specialized in their field of work. This is a general statement not something written in stone and I am no expert on this. I made Staff Sergeant, E-6, in five years.
