Ever lost power while trying to complete an assignment on your computer? Amazon is here to help.

It's happened to all of us at some point or another. You've spent hours working on something on your computer, and without thinking you didn't save any time recently, and… the power goes out. If only you had a few more minutes of power, you could have saved all of that work.

Amazon is running a one day sale on my personal favorite UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply), the APC BR1500G Back-UPS Pro. As I said last year when I made this one of my holiday gift guide picks:

Earlier this year I lost power for several hours early in my work day. While I had no lights, I was able to say online for around 2 & 1/2 hours with a cable modem, router and iMac all plugged into this beast. Things started to get dicey by then, but luckily the power came back on just in time. With a suggested retail price of $310 – you can find it much cheaper online – you or whomever you give this to will greatly appreciate having it when that moment comes. It also offers surge protection and a copious amount of outlets, so it has uses all year round.

Amazon has it for $129.99 today, 58 percent off its suggested retail price, and the cheapest I have ever seen it. This sale is good for today only, so I would suggest you jump on it quickly.
