As far as I know, APC UPSen, at least the "desktop" or "personal" units
like the SmartUPS, are "offline" UPSes - they flip over to battery when
a loss of power is detected.

Bigger stuff, like the Matrix stacks, are "online" - you're running off
battery, and charging said battery, continuously.

Speaking of power - anybody had experience with the "Brickwall" 
surge supressors?  http://www.brickwall.com.  I'm considering buying
a couple; one for the computer room and one to put between my 51" TV
and the wall..
