It might be plugged into a surge protector, but that won't help from outages (blackouts), or low voltages (brownouts).
IMO, get a battery backup with voltage regulation. I have a couple of them (my main one has a nice LCD screen on the front that I can toggle through various screens to see how much power is being used (wattage wise, % wise, etc.), or how much time is left on the battery, etc.
