Key features of the APC Back-UPS Pro Gaming UPS include:
- Reactor Circle: When the Gaming UPS is on battery backup power, the reactor circle ticks down to show how much time is left at a glance
- 160 Degree Slant: APC made sure the reactor circle is titled at 160 degrees, so it’s visible from nearly every angle
