Power cuts are par for the course out here in California and in many places around the world. Even a one-second power cut to your 3D printer is enough for a 22-hour print-to-stop to be ruined. An Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) like the CyberPower CP1500 will keep power flowing to your printer via high-capacity batteries and magic (OK, maybe not real magic), so you should never have to worry. If you're looking to get started in 3D printing, then a UPS is an important first step. Here are the best UPS for 3D printers.

Power up!

These UPS will give your 3D printing a fighting chance when it comes to power outages, and really, the bigger, the better when it comes to power. If you're lucky and live with constant power but still want a UPS as added security, remember to use your UPS occasionally anyway. The batteries need to be used, so they don't fail when you need them most.

Most 3D printing people choose the APC BackupPro for their UPS needs from the research I have done, but I am partial to the Jackery 1000 as it has many other applications, not just as a battery backup. I've used the Jackery to power a printer at a talk I gave on 3D printing, and it worked so well I forgot it wasn't on mains power at all.
