The rise in the popularity and competitiveness of e-sports and computer gaming in the Philippines lend to the increased need for more durable and reliable gaming equipment.

With the local gaming circuit fast becoming a high-level, globally competitive one, gamers both professional and casual need to be plugged in for longer hours to train for their chosen games. Consoles and high-performance computers are now considered an investment, making it necessary to ensure their lifespan and optimal capability are maintained.

Schneider Electric, the world’s leading provider of energy and automation, and digital solutions, understands the need for reliable power supply and surge protection ideal for computers and other electronic devices.

Addressing this need, Schneider Electric introduces the APC Gaming UPS as the best ally to keep gaming systems protected from potential damage, especially during unexpected power disruptions.

During unexpected power interruption, the APC Gaming UPS is the best back-up available to keep gaming systems protected and connected and, in the game, through our products, we combine protection with innovation, ensuring that power consumption is manageable and cost-efficient.

Says Schneider Electric Distributor Account Manager Danlyn Morales.

The APC Gaming UPS is also the same product used by Miraculum Gaming, a pro-league e-sports team based in Manila, at a friendly Dota 2 tournament hosted by Schneider Electric. The tournament demonstrated the capacity to continuously power an ongoing game in a power outage scenario.

Some of the special features of the APC Gaming UPS include:

  • Battery backup and surge protector outlets
  • Sinewave power output* that ensures power quality without distortion or power drop during an outage
  • Two USB charging ports (Type C + Type A)
