    Hi guys,

    Anyone knows a supplier of UPS that has USB port or ethernet cable (as Network UPS server) here in Metro Manila? PCExpress, Octagon and Gilmore St is hit or miss. I got my first one from PCExpress but only good for 2 outlets. Need at least 3 for my PS4, a media server and router.

    If your current UPS still has enough capacity, you can keep it and just add this if the outlet on the unit is the IEC-type:

    If it already has a US plug, get one of these or a 2- or 3-way extension cord (three-pronged, if you/'re particular about earth grounding).

    I need it on another location so adapters won't suffice.

    A couple of hits off TipidPC.com:

    PCHub and DynaquestPC are my go-to shops for computer-related parts and equipment.

    FWIW, I use an APC Smart-UPS 700VA with a network interface card (bought used from eBay) for my media server, firewall, switch, and an access point. I then use cheaper/'dumb' 650VA UPSes made by Intex to power up a secondary switch, additional access points and a backup NAS.
