VA is the number you get when you multiply Volts output times Amps output.
When buying a UPS, add up all the VAs of the devices you want to have battery backup protection [e.g. laptop + monitor + external drives + other ] and double that number.
This way when you loose power, you are only using 50% of the UPS's rated output. Otherwise your will shutdown in just a few minutes.
