MGE do a (large) powerstrip UPS called the Protection Center in a
range of VA options.  For low power kit you should get more than 5
minutes of runtime even off the smallest.  You need to do the maths
and use their selector (which I've found to be pretty accurate).

Be warned that the 2900 has a pretty high power draw!

                 Please keep list traffic on the list.
