In general, NO. UPSs are not created equal. Among all the UPSs, the ones used for computers would be the least stringent because their main load is the SMPSes of computers and monitors. A UPS consists of two main parts, the battery and the electronics. The battery has a certain energy storage capacity given in terms of ampere-hours and voltage of the battery. The electronics has one part that manages the battery charging and the other part that manages the load handling. You will have to check the details of the particular UPS and decide.
