    Default "Best" Power Bar?

    I just got back from the club and mid-set, the power bar that my USB hub was plugged into cut out. More specifically, it cuts out and then back in, in about a split second. The problem with that is my external harddrive which houses all my songs loses its connection to the system, and everything just goes haywire until I restart (I can't just plug it back into the hub as it seems to only be detected upon booting).

    Anyway just trust me I have all my USB plugs set up as best as possible (some devices aren't recognized if plugged in through the hub and so require a direct connection / others are through the hub).

    Long story short, I was wondering if there's a power bar that would prevent this sort of thing from happening in the event of a very brief power failure...

    I have a really good one. I'll check the brand when I get home. But still, I just got it at Best Buy, so I think you can find them anywhere.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    I'm not taking any chances! I actually found one of these at home, too bad it's so big...

    battery backup is an absolute lifesaver. never leave home (to dj) without it!

    Will have to be careful not to cross the streams, but I'm sure that won't be a problem at my night!
