Thread: Backup Battery for PC

  1. #1

    Default Backup Battery for PC

    Does anyone know of somewhere that sells an extension cord that has a tiny battery in the housing. This is just in case of a power failure. Then say 5mins of battery power will give me time to dismount my external HD, close all the programs running on my computer and shut it down.

    +1, and a decent UPS should bag you 20-30 Minutes, but it won't come quietly.

    ... and a "tiny battery" is not really gonna cut it.

    Having said UPS, Google does install a battery for each PC in their data centers, I believe. Exactly how it works, I have no idea, but I imagine that it would need to supply both 12V and 5V in sufficient quantities to keep the board going.

    I suspect that it has something to do with their custom designed computers, and is not generally applicable to consumer machines.
