That data (probably a rough approximation) bothered me before buying
a line conditioner, but I got over it. And apparently blackouts of
short duration are uncommon where I live.

A brownout is reduced voltage, not necessarily a complete outage.
A line conditioner is not a 1/60th of a second UPS, it is a voltage
I sure would like data for what the house current does and how the
line conditioner reacts. But oh well.

I was looking for robust but very short lived UPS support. I just
don't like the idea of fluctuations in house current messing with my
personal computer. The line conditioner is taking care of that
without using a battery.
