    He bought a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). Not a PSU.

    It is basically a big battery thing, to provide temp power in case the house power goes out.
    It runs the PC long enough for you to shut down gracefully.

    Which sockets? All else being equal, the PC and monitor go in the "Battery backup sockets". That's what they are there for.

    What exact make/model is this thing?

    That will protect against momentary power drops, or give you a couple of mins to turn off gracefully.
