Without digging too deep into this, you would surely get more useful
answers if you can give an estimate for the maximum size that would fit
your needs, power demands, backup time needed, the amount of $$$ you're
prepared to spend on it, etc.

If you've found something yourself already, if the device is mentioned in
the list of supported UPSes, it most likely will work. Most of the time if
a special cable is needed, it will either be provided with the UPS and/or
instructions on how to make it are given.
