Hi,

I need a UPS to run my Mac Mini M1. I will also connect it to my wireless router. I will be running the following on the UPS:
1. Samsung 27 inch monitor
2. Mac Mini M1
3. Wireless router 300N

Can you please suggest a basic but good quality UPS? I will be buying it online, as I am in Mussoorie. Hello is much appreciated.

APC or Cyberpower. Calculate how much wattage your devices are taking in, add some buffer and divide it by 0.6; the figure at which you arrive is capacity of UPS you should get.

Mac Mini M1 is rated 150W Max Power, Samsung at 25W, add another 10W for the Router.

So basically, the lowest rated 600VA APC will comfortably do the trick.

Or if you wish to get the best protection, go for an Online UPS- but they are expensive & noisy as hell.

OT: where from you bought the Apple Mac Mini M1 and for how much?

Apple website is showing long delivery time and it's obviously sold on MRP there.

Just don't buy cheap brands like intel/iball unless u intend to plug it in an inverter supply , I have used iball ups and have had very bad experience , apc ups are worth the money though , 1kva ups drives my rig for 25 mins atleast at full usage , I have an i59400f and 1660ti with 1 ssd and no rgb

I ordered it as soon as it became available. Took 3 weeks to deliver
