I manage multiple websites and client servers. Therefore, the smooth power supply is an essential requirement to sustain pressure from client and monitor server in real-time. In last three years, Numeric 600 VA UPS had backed up my desktop and router even in extreme electricity crisis. Numeric is a reputed Indian UPS manufacturer. I would recommend Numeric UPS for my friends with tight pocket.
In a regular conversation with one of my team members, working outside Tamilnadu, I mentioned that here in Chennai electricity problem has been solved completely. Now we are getting 24 hours of power supply. Also, TNEB is making sure high voltage electricity supply to homes without fluctuation. Yes, this is true. This summer, we are not suffering from power crisis thanks to the TN government's priority monitoring. While I was having the conversation, an unexpected power cut lasted for approx 30 minutes. And when power resume, it resume with huge voltage fluctuation. Because of that, electronics equipments at my residence had badly affected. In fact, I had to close all the running gadgets and equipment except desktop. I continue working to complete all pending works on time. Actually, the intencity of voltage fluctuation was too high, which killed my three-year-old Numeric 600VA UPS (3 Year × 365 Days × 16 Hours = 17520 Hours or more usages). The UPS released lite smoke; which was an indication of a final goodbye.
The new task for me was to find a UPS, which can backup my computer for 5 to 10 minutes. Power crisis in Tamil Nadu has solved and we do not face long power cut nowadays. As you all my friends come on the GS to get suggestion on gadgets, I started searching online for a UPS with good ratings. My search ended with a suggestion from a friend to look for the Champion 800 VA USP. This backup gadget is available at Flipkart for a price of 2500 rupees. Flipkart seller had offered me a free home delivery. However, while I am drafting this review, a new seller now offers purchase with a paid delivery. Buyer needs to pay 200 extra to get the UPS delivered at your home.
Why I have selected the Champion USP
Excellent online rating and reviews: Although this is a costly UPS, but its 800VA capacity, long backup time, and performance is well-justified. For a home PC, a 600VA UPS is more than sufficient. As I mentioned above I was using the Numeric 600 VA UPS, I would suggest this Champion 800VA UPS for advance users. Whereas basic system users can look for an option below 2000 rupees. My Laptop, PC, and Smartphones are mostly in on mode. But this is not for everyone. Most of users usages desktop computer for an hour or half. For such usages requirement, a 600 VA UPS is absolutely fine.
Indian Brand Value: Coming back to this advance UPS; it is a decent product from Indian brand Champion. Pune-based Aar-em Electronics Pvt. Ltd sales the best quality UPS on affordable price under Champion brand name. We have visited the official website, which is customer friendly and easily accessible. Most of my friend must be thinking – why a customer friendly brand website is important. Trust me, a genuine company with good intention will adopt all possible way to help the customer.
