These things are on sell all the time in various ads. I picked up the
$10 Energizer UPS I mentioned (price was too good to pass up). I'm
going to replace the tin 3.7AH battery with an external 56AH Battery
pack (I have them from another prject.) Just add an "extension" from
the wires on the UPS to the external battery. I calculated that I'll
get 30+ hours of runtime on the UPS alone.
