Grab a cheap power meter first to determine how much load you're drawing typically.

You're probably looking at a 800-1000VA unit though as the bare minimum, which runs about $100.

You might be able to get away with a 400-500VA unit though if you literally only need seconds, but I think most of them have overload protection so it might not even work if it detects you've exceeded it's rating.
