I get electricity included in my rent, which is nice. My rack of
servers is currently drawing about 1.1A currently (groan) with a
suspiciously low power factor of 0.65. What's that, 260W and 440VA?

The power distribution in my village is a bit ropey, but I bought a
UPS which mitigates the effects a bit. It's a 750VA unit but it still
starts complaining about a low battery after only a few minutes.
Perhaps the power factor's making it unhappy.
