That's a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a web server to avoid the loss of info if the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unstable.

Using this kind of a backup is essential for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it provides them with plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
