So, since I need to power the 5370 (preferably both) I'm looking at a deep cycle battery, a charger, and an inverter?  At this point in the process, a power line monitor is looking like a good solution.  At least it would tell me to ignore the test results.

A UPS has 2 major properties.  One is the amount of power it can put out.  
The other is the battery size which translates into how long it will last.

The low cost market is for a unit that will last long enough to let a PC and 
friends shut down cleanly.  The battery isn't very big.  It will cover 
typical blink-the-lights glitches.  Beyond that, the time is measured in 
minutes rather than hours.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
