Default Can I connect my computer directly without UPS?


I had been connecting my computer through a UPS for the last 3 years. This means that the connection first went through the UPS to the computer. But now my UPS has started working quite badly and therefore, I want to connect the computer directly without the UPS. Will that be safe or will that cause some problems like voltage fluctuations,etc.?

Waiting for your replies...

You'll be safe with out one. Really all they do is keep you safe from brown-outs and power outages. Other than that, they are just one big surge protector. You'll be fine with out it, but get a new one ASAP.
