As you may have well heard, the San Diego area was hit with a massive blackout yesterday. Since voipreview.org's offices are in San Diego, we were blacked out.
In an emergency like we just had, all our VoIP phones went down. A few of our computers have battery backups (they didn't shut down incorrectly, unlike all the others) but our VoIP phone system didn't have any battery backups.
I did a little research on backup-ready power strips, which can allow you to keep your VoIP phones connected to the Internet long enough for you make calls. They run about $50 to $100 and they can keep your computers going too.
I'd recommend investing in a battery backup power strip if your concerned about power outages with VoIP.
Do any of you have a specific battery-powered backup that you use in case of an emergency! Post your preferred model in the comments below!
