Power on Tap
DIY backup power system
In this project, the author has used readily available components and a bit of original design to create a backup power system with an output capacity of 300 to 600 VA. Thanks to its portability, you can also use it outdoors to provide mood lighting for a barbecue party or power a sound system for several hours. And in a hard winter, the battery can also come in handy as a booster for starting your car.
