If you enjoy running mini PCs you might be interested in a new uninterrupted power supply called the Fit-Uptime that is capable of providing up to 3 hours of 12 V DC backup power.
The Fit-Uptime has been specifically designed for Fit-PCs, Intel’s NUCs, and other mini-PCs and is equipped with an 18w hour battery and is capable of outputting DC 12V / 5A or 12V to 19V / 5A where connected to power.
The small UPS measures just 80 x 68 x 32mm in size and weighs 240g, Fit PC explains a little more :
Fit-Uptime works similar to an external battery pack/charger with one major improvement – very fast output switching between line power and battery backup. So when grid power is lost and later resumed it will go unnoticed by the PC.
No drivers or software to install. No intervention with the normal operation of the PC. No system re-testing required. fit-Uptime can protect your mini-PC immediately out-of-the-box. You do not even need to charge it. fit-Uptime has Li-polymer batteries with 18 Watt-hour capacity. If your mini-PC consumes 5W on average fit-Uptime will power it for over 3 hours.
Regression testing for sudden power loss and taking measures to protect the system against anything from file-system corruption to bricking: This is one of the most difficult stages in development of a new system. With fit-Uptime you can skip that and just assume your mini-PCs will simply not lose power. In other words – you can assume power related MTTF to be long enough to neglect.
