Great experience over the years here with EATON - have used APC at work but was never happy with their battery life (I suspect that they ran too hot).

We're in a small hill village with many overhead power lines radiating out over the surrounding area, so whenever there is a storm anywhere nearby brownouts or 1-2 second blackouts are guaranteed.

All the puters, NAS, switches, modem etc. are on "domestic" UPS units (we have 4) and they switch over just fine during brownouts.

My favourite: Eaton Ellipse. Really easy to change the batteries (contrary to some Chinese units).

Note that most domestic UPS use 12v 7Ah sealed lead acid batteries that you can find very easily at £12 to £20 ea. (e.g.Yuasa NP7-12L)
So old that I did my first coding in octal via switches on a DEC PDP 8
