need help picking the right APC for me... HELP

This was originally posted on APC forums on 2/5/2011

HI- I am new to this back up power... we loose power alot in our new house during storms because we are on the top of a mountain... I would like something that really lasts for a long time and could possible run a lamp and a cell phone charger at the same time... I have heard that there are ones that will have 8-10 outlets and last for 8 hours... is this the longest lasting one available??? any suggestions??
thanks for the help!!
