Here in South Australia we have been known to have our fare share of power failures so here are some tips to get you through the summer.

It pays to keep your devices on charge overnight so that if the worst happens you are not stuck

Consider an external battery pack for your devices , they start at just over the $30 mark and will give you at least a couple of charges.

Configure your devices to get maximum battery life – Here are some tips

Consider a UPS – an uninterruptible power supply – this may get you through a short failure while still allowing you to run your computer and modem to get internet access
