How To: Power a computer with car batteries

Power a computer with car batteries

The original idea was to turn a small home UPS into a giant UPS but because the UPS was only able to run the RAID-wielding desktop for three minutes before shutting down, he decided to add two 24V car batteries to the equation (the maximum that his UPS could tolerate). The good news: it worked, and will run his computer for an hour plus.

Not a good idea to leave those deep cycle battries in the house unless you like inhaling Sulfuric acid fumes. I ran a longer wire and had the Battry outside of my house.
