Robbie and Christa take a look at the CyberPower GreenPower UPS, an economical battery backup with higher-end features such as a full LCD display, better-than-average surge protection, a $500,000 Connected Equipment Guarantee, and cost saving, environmentally friendly features. A large assortment of viewer questions this week as well.

Notes:
Audio issues are bugging the chat room tonight. We hope the new microphones will be operational soon! Please bear with us as we must use one of the old lapels in conjunction with the single headset.
