Eaton 3S UPS, $76

This affordable UPS (uninterruptable power supply) can run for about 20-45 minutes to keep your computer and office equipment running if there is a power failure. Yet, the truly unique feature is called EcoControl. Because the UPS itself knows when your computer is plugged in, the Eaton 3S can detect when your computer goes to sleep, sits idle, or is shutdown. (In a sense, it “feels” the power being drawn for the main PC outlet.) When you plug other devices into one of the other nine outlets, the 3S can automatically cut their power to save on your bill. Eaton says using the 3S can cut energy costs for connected devices up to 30 percent.
