Last month at a business client’s location, something caught my attention while I was investigating a Microsoft Outlook email problem  I went to plug-in my laptop power cord into a UPS and I noticed my client had plugged a heater into the battery side of a battery back-ups.  This is not a good idea because the heater pulls too much power and may trip the breaker on the UPS and shut it down.  Then the computer connected to the UPS would also shut-down which could corrupt their data.  At my suggestion, they  moved the heater to power strip instead.
