A power outage won’t rob you of your laptop or your phone, but it will take out your modem and router and take down your sweet, sweet Wi-Fi. But there’s a way out. An Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS), can power your networking equipment directly under typical circumstances, and seamlessly switch them to battery power in abnormal ones. And for Black Friday, you can snag a $80 UPS for just $30, for a discount of $50.

A UPS won’t save you if your ISP’s headquarters is also knocked all the way offline, but backup generators mean your internet should stay stable through a short blackout so long as you can hold up your end of the bargain. And for $30, it is worth ensuring that you can.

Deal expires 11/30/19.
