How to determine battery backup run time of UPS?

How can I estimate how long an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) will continue to power my hardware in the event of a power failure?
Most UPS manufacturers will have a calculator or an estimation table with information you'll need for the calculation. Here's the formula you'll need to do the calculation yourself taken from hotogeek (http://www.howtogeek.com/161479/how-to-select-a-battery-backup-for-your-computer/)

X * 60 = Estimated Run Time in Minutes

Here's one that has a simple calculator with the information you can gather from the ups https://www.backupbatterypower.com/pages/ups-run-time-calculator
