I'd like to have a battery backup for my alarm clock. Can I use the Back-UPS series like the BE550G model or are they only ok for computer power supplies?

I have one in the bedroom hooked up to the clock radio, and an led lamp.
I disconected the buzzer so it will never beep and wake me up if the power goes off in the middle of the night.

So using this Back-ups unit for a TV/DVR would be OK?
