I was thinking of using battery and surge protector instead of UPS. With UPS you have to:
- Do checkups
- Ship for battery replacements
i.e it is a hassle. With laptop battery you have nothing to worry about if you keep it charged in a frame between 40% to 60% and in temperature below 25 C so you prolong battery life. Besides i never use battery because my laptop is a good substitute for desktop to me since i don't use heavy applications at all.
The problem might be that in my country, temperature in summer is 30 C - 32 C. What i don't know is if i will save money and if yes, then how much.
What do you think? Are there other advantages and disadvantages i did not mention?
