I assume you're referring to the ``Back-UPS'' line.  The only thing
I've found those to be able to support on battery power is my clock
radio, which I could more easily protect with a 9-volt.

Has any one of you actually used these to sustain a PC for any
measurable length of time?  I'm not sure at what market this junk
is aimed, perhaps suckers.
