Best UPS battery backups for your Mac 2022

Most Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) battery backups are intended to let you finish what you're doing on your computer then shut it down before a power outage can cause damage. From there, you can then use the remaining battery life to light your home or to power smaller devices such as smartphones. Each of the following best UPS battery backups for Mac fits that bill in different ways.

Back that Mac up

Whether you're in the office or on the road, don't be left without power when you need it most. These best UPS battery backups for Mac are a great way to keep your devices running, even if you have a temporary power outage. My fave is the Ecoflow EFDELTA Portable Power Station because of its easy portability and powerful reliability. You can also charge it with a solar panel if you have one.

If that one is out of your budget, take a look at the ultra-affordable APC UPS 600VA, with seven outlets and 600VA of power. The APC SmartConnect is also a solid choice. It is a stationary unit, but it will certainly get the job done. When looking for a solution, check the number of ports and how long the power will remain during emergencies. You should also check for sales since many of these are often available at a discount.
