How much power does a small office need to stay connected during Eskom induced loadshedding?

Typically a home office or small office will require enough power to run 2 PC's, a cellphone charger, a desk lamp, and charge an emergency light.

Depending on your PC's this would equate to a total of approximately 100 watts as demonstrated in this short video.

The Power in  Box's  UPS (uninterrupted power supply) capability was beautifully demonstrated by courtesy of Eskom who switched the lights off while filming this 1 minute video. ( See how a small office can remain unaffected by load shedding for up to 4 hours.)
