equipment to ensure temporary uninterrupted operation of your equipment
during a power failure. ( DO NOT plug a laser printer, paper shredder,
copier, space heater, vacuum, sump pump or other large electrical
device into battery and surge protected outlets. The power demands
of these devices will overload and possibly damage the unit.)
