I have one of these for my ONT - lasts for a couple of hours if required,

12V UPS

That's the sort of thing I need, I was looking at a cheaper, smaller version which would probably do.

The power only goes off for a few seconds normally!

Have you considered a UPS for all your computer equipment?
Loss of power can cause file system damage and lost or corrupted files.
Bouncing power can fry equipment.

Actually, that might not be a bad idea at all.

I did run a UPS years ago when I had a desktop running 24/7, set up to shut the PC down on a power outage. Laptops and phones aren't going to suffer, but the lad uses a desktop PC, and I often think it can't do the hard drives in the TV boxes any favours either... and then there's the NAS box... Hmmm...

To be honest, this current run of power blips is not usual, we must have had more than half a dozen outages in the last 3 months - probably more than in the last 5-10 years. It's usually only in severe weather that we have problems.

I'll give it some thought.

You need to sort out the power cut issues otherwise DLM will capped your line such as banded line pretty soon.

There's not much I can do about it, apart from a UPS
