2021

Most uninterruptible power supply (UPS) backup batteries are designed to allow you to finish what you’re doing on your computer and then shut it down before a power outage can cause damage. From there, you can use the remaining battery life to light up your home or to power smaller devices like smartphones. Each of the following best UPS battery backups for Mac fits that bill in different ways.



The portable choice:
EcoFlow RIVER Max Portable Power Station

Staff Favorite

Weighing only 11 pounds, this portable power supply offers 600W of power and allows you to connect up to 5 devices at once. The battery will charge for up to one year between uses. This is the UPS in my house and I have had a lot of success with it. It is the one that I carry during camping trips to charge my mobile devices. The device is next to my desk when I am at home.


APC backup 1000va

Choice that pays off:
APC 2200VA Smart UPS with SmartConnect

This 2200 VA backup battery includes eight outlets, four of which provide backup of UPS battery power. The other four only offer surge protection. This model would last around an hour when the power runs out, which is enough time to shut down your Mac during an emergency. See also the other APC options. Larger UPS devices are sometimes available for less than smaller ones, thanks to Amazon sales.

cyberpower avr ups

Durable and convenient:
CyberPower CP1200AVR AVR UPS System

The CyberPower AVR UPS system is available in various prices and styles. This model, the 1200VA, includes five battery backup outlets and five that only provide surge protection. This UPS is ideal if you are new to systems like this as it is priced appropriately and has many ports for most people with a single computer.


600va ups apc unit

Budget option:
600VA APC UPS Unit

This is a low-cost solution that gets the job done in a pinch. It includes seven outlets, five of which serve as battery backup and surge protection, while the other two only function as surge protection. Wait about 20 minutes of use without power. That’s not a long time, but it will allow you to safely shut things down during a power outage.


apc 2200va

Big and bad:
APC Smart-UPS 3000VA UPS with SmartConnect

Definitely made not to move, this UPS device includes six outlets, four of which can be used for battery backup. It will run for almost six hours without power. This is the UPS to use with your iMac, as it is not portable at all, just like the computer.

aeiusny generator

One to travel:
Aeiusny Portable Generator Power

This 500W portable battery is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. Provides three AC outlets, four DC ports, and four USB ports. It could also run for up to six hours without power, depending on your settings. Of all those on the list, this is the one that interests me the most. For the price, you get a lot of ports and hours of power. This seems like a win-win, doesn’t it?

Back up that mac

Whether you’re in the office or on the go, don’t run out of power when you need it most. These best UPS backup batteries for Mac are a great way to keep your devices running, even if you have a temporary power outage. My favorite is the Ecoflow EFDELTA Portable Power Station because of its easy portability and powerful reliability. You can also charge it with a solar panel if you have one.

If that’s out of your budget, take a look at the ultra-affordable APC UPS 600VA with seven outlets and 600VA of power. The APC SmartConnect is also a solid option. It is a stationary unit, but it will definitely get the job done. When looking for a solution, check the number of ports and how long the power will stay on during emergencies. You should also check the sales, as many of them are often available at a discount.
