The UPS manufacturers, that I am familiar with, warn against connecting a UPS to a surge protector.

The reason for that is many of the surge protectors aren't rated for the current draw a UPS may be capable of. For example, my 2.2KVAR UPS has to be plugged into a dedicated 20A 120v circuit (I had to install one; fortunately, it was a short, easy run from the breaker panel). I've yet to see a surge arrestor rated that high. Many, if not most, surge arrestors are rated for less than the full capacity of even 15A circuits. However, if one does have a heavy duty surge arrestor and the TOTAL load plugged into the arrestor, including the UPS and anything else plugged into the arrestor, is less than the rated capacity of the arrestor, then there is nothing wrong with plugging the UPS into the surge arrestor.

You are obviously free to connect your products how you choose. I only pointed out what some UPS manufacturers have stated.

I turned off the living room breaker today while a normal load (left monitor on Standby, PS3 off). Both UPSs worked alright, no problems switching to battery and back, nothing got burned either

Thanks everyone for their precious comments and advise.

Note: Both surge protectors are 10A rated, so 2400W which I am not filling anyway. I will update if something funny happens during a real blackout, as power quality will fluctuate.

Just came across this mate and my Cyber Power 850 comes with it's own surge protection - not much granted - 125 Joules but I then hook up my main surge boards to that.

It actually states on the device a current capability of 10 amps - not that I would go that far.
