Desktop Rechargable Battery?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just curious has anyone ever made something like this? For those with a mobile like desktop? A battery you can place inside the case that the power supply will connect to and pull power from? The idle usage on a desktop compared to a laptop can't be that bad. I hooked up a killawatt to my whole system, speakers and two monitors and was only pulling 100 watts idly/playing music and all. And 220 gaming.

Just curious is all haha.

The closest thing to what you're asking for is a high capacity UPS.

I'll be damned if i'll be lugging around a desktop and a high capacity UPS. Just the UPS alone would be heavy enough tongue.gif

Haha. It'd be something cool to build. I've always thought of making a desktop/laptop hybrid for the heck of it. Some how mounting a small foldable monitor on it and all. And a small gaming case or so. Have the longenitivy and cheapness of a desktop with mostly the mobility of a laptop. Hah, although I don't have money to waste so.

Best bet would be to use a high-capacity rechargeable +12V battery and an automotive-rated +12V-input PicoPSU.
