    From what I understand about UPS' you can hook up whatever you want to them. If you are pulling more than they allow, then it simply won't act as a battery backup, but better yet a surge protector. That is what APC told me when I bought my new UPS and told them what I had hooked up to it. They said it won't support all that for battery backup purposes, but it will act as a nice surge protector.

    All devices have their maximum wattage either written on them or stated in their manuals. Just add the numbers up and see what you get.
