Before you connect all your stuff, make sure they really work when fed from 
the UPS. E.g. the output voltage of my UPS drops considerably (by design!) in 
case of a power failure. A switching power supply in a computer can handle 
this but other devices may not. Once I tried to use my cord shaver off the 
UPS. Not a pleasant experience... but it was an emergency ;)
