my whole computer/gaming center. lol can run for about 8 hours after power is out.

beleive it our not you can run 110-120 volt things on 12volts batterys.(car batterys).

you just buy one of those inverter things that you use in your car to power A/C stuff. i got a 800 watt one. and then i just collect batterys and add them on to the line. and then you setup a charging system. now the joke is i dont have this setup but if i had the money i would.

I hate it when the power goes out while your on the computer, playing video games or watching south park and it immediately turns off and you miss the best bit. Aarrgghh they should have a back-up, or is there already?
