How many watts is this rated?
Anyway, for science, I looked up the answer to my own question for anyone else wondering...
The APC Power Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500 has a maximum power output of 865 watts.
After purchasing the other $100 APC from store.apple.com about a week ago, went to the store to pick it up only to discover a tech spec clearly listed multiple times on the box that is not listed here. For anyone wondering, that APC is only rated for a maximum of 450 watts.
Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me... Second time this has happened now so I won't trust store.apple.com for accessory specs again. I'll do more homework and cross reference store.apple's specs with the manufacturer's web site from now on. Seriously Apple. Give me a job. I'll make sure the tech specs for accessories are completely entered so others don't feel my pain of time/gas/money being wasted. Or, your know... you guys could just read the box and type in the info...

First, figure out how much power you need. The specs on this unit are "1 hour, 20 minutes @ 100W" or
"4 minutes @ 800W". Basically, a higher load severely reduces its battery time.
Put only the equipment you must have on battery backup. With a wireless router and a computer - this unit is fine, and will last for about an hour. However, if you add in your monitors or other devices on the backup as well - expect the battery to only last a few minutes. Limit backup power to just the essentials. You'll have to get a much bigger unit to be able to power a complete computer system for a long time. These small units are mostly for keeping you from loosing data, or for keeping your network going during short power outages. They're also good as line conditioners, as they are a buffer between your homes electrical system and your computer.
