Hi,
I have a question about a UPS backup power supply such as this simple one:

Please correct me if I'm wrong. If I have a power outage, and within a minute my generator kicks in to supply power, will this UPS keep my computer and modem running for that minute and then shut off when the generator kicks in to supply power to the house?

Thanks,
RB
