    I am using some kind of bullshit UPS who even can't give me backup for 1 min, whenever the powercut, i already changed the batteries 3 times. Is there any good UPS which is sufficient for giving me something 5-10 min backup atleast i can save the job and shutdown my computer safely. Please advice.

    I'm using APC. It can backup up to 10 minutes with my 22" LCD.

    Btw, how old is your UPS? Perhaps the battery is the problem, but sometimes it's better to buy a brand new one than replacing the battery.

    i use an apc 1300VA 780 watt. it gives around 10 min of power.
    check your power usage, it sounds like you may be overloading the battery.
