That will work fine if the USB port allows you to attach your computer and it comes with software to shutdown in the event of power loss for a preset time, like 5 minutes.
5 min more than enough i would say for just save and power it off.

what do you mean with the usb port? you lost me there, never had a ups before so this will be a first for me.

The UPS should have a cable to attach to the computer usb and software that the battery can use to shut down the computer in case the outage lasts beyond the time limit. If you simply run off the battery, the computer will do an uncontrolled shutdown when its power is depleted.
