Bummer - but one question - how old is your UPS?

A while ago I was picking up something from a local office supply store, and the sales clerk suggested a new UPS for me (I had told him mine was 10+ years old with new batteries). He mentioned that the surge protection (usually varistors) where out over time and lose their protective qualities.

I wrote APC to ask them about it, but either received an idiot response from an AI or from a human. I never really confirmed whether or not the issue is factually. Anyone else know?

Has never been more appropriate.
