I've been using extension cords with my UPSs at home since the mid 90's and I've never had issue. I've also used regular surge protector outlet strips with all my UPS without any issues either.
I have to use some kind of power strips and extension cords to connect over one hundred pieces of A/V and computer equipment I have on my 12 APC UPSs(as well as cordless phones, cameras, alarm clocks, etc.). Otherwise I would not have enough outlets. I use several surge protected power strips that give me around 12 outlets each plus a bunch of smaller strips that have six outlets. As well as extension cords with three and four outlets.
