UPS recommendation



   I am sourcing for a entry level UPS mainly for Synology NAS 918+. I scanned through the catalogue and I am overwhelm by so many models.



   1) What is the differences between SMC and SMT lines? it is just a different in generation?

   2) What does it imply when the UPS is not in the compatible list for the NAS?

   3) What will happen if the NAS is in the process of shutting down, and the power comes back up again?

   4) Will you recommend a UPS running on lead-acid battery or Lithium-ion battery?

   5) If lithium-ion powered, what is the compatible model for my NAS?


   Sorry for asking noob questions; I am totally new to this area.
