Didn't really think so, just trying to rule some things out.

Does it play music? CD's Tapes etc.? A radio? Does it Transmit something?

it`s Kinda like a converter, as far as I know a phone doesn`t plug into it, although it Does a strange 9 pin D plug at the back that I have no idea what it`s for (it works without it though).

it looks like a small u.p.s. (uninterruptable power supply).

the 9 pin d connector is usually a configuration/maintenance console port.

to be more specific, it takes a.c. in, keeps a trickle charge on a coupla batteries, and usually outputs line a.c., unless it detects the loss of the input. then it kicks in the battery backup, converting the d.c. out of the batteries to supply the a.c. outputs.

we use them on a lot of small computer systems at work.
