Thanks Tom,

You have convinced me. I am giving up my plan to use multiple batteries to 
power my computer direct with DC current. I like Angel's setup much better 
and in the end it will be cheaper and less trouble. Charging the batteries 
with an auto alternator and its regulator if the power goes off and stays off 
for long periods of time is a better way to go.  Driving the alternator with 
a 5 HP engine from a discarded snow blower or whatever is much cheaper than 
buying an expensive Honda generator. I just happen to have a 5-HP Briggs and 
Stratton engine that I salvaged from an old snow blower somebody set out at 
the curb for garbage pickup. 

So please, Angel, tell me more details about your 1500 Watt inverter/charger. 
I'd like to get one.

Best regards and thanks,
