    I wonder how much you could of saved with a generator ... battery backups are expensive and don't last long. Generators are comparatively cheap, and can last days if you have the fuel supply (especially if natural gas is available). All you need is a battery that will last long enough for the generator to warm up.

    Our work UPS is a bit smaller than that, but powers a dozen network switches, 9 servers, phone system (including all desk phones), Wi-Fi, alarm and fire systems, a few lights, and 11 workstations. Estimated runtime, 32 minutes.

    Not sure how often this is an issue, but an automatic whole office backup generator might have been cheaper than a monstrous UPS that eventually would run out of juice? In that configuration, your UPS provides unbroken power to key items until the generator kicks in.

    Idiot. Should have gotten an old shcool diesel generator and have her set for backup. A 400HP Detroit Diesel 8v71TA could kick that battery's ASS! Being mostly mechanical and old school she could run on fryer grease , penut oil, diesel fuel, kerosene, lamp oil, ect It could even run on gas if you added some SAE#30 oil to it. She'd run for days too. He could have saved thousands. All he need to do is keep it plugged in to keep the engine warm while it isnt running. Whats better that battery or 300,000 watts? You wouldn't need it inside either. Just have her sitting on a few cement blocks outside under a tarp.
