Then get an APC one.  I have two of them for my systems (LS 500, CS 500)
and they've been working great.  The best part is the linux software you
need is already part of Debian.  The package is called "apcupsd".  It will
shutdown you system gracefully if the batteries run out of power.  Also, it
will send you emails whenever the power goes out and gets restored.
