    Backup Battery and power converter combo

    Anyone ever decided to skip the $300 dollar opus option and just go for one of these babies , and a ac-dc converter?

    Seems like it would be cheaper, and equally beneficial, save for shutdown controller.
    mobo $130 ; 150wOpus-$200 ; 256mb pc2700 -$10 ; 120gb HDD 7200-$70 ; Lilliput TS 7"-$265 ; USB LAN-Free AR ; Rikaline 6010 GPS-$34 ; ShuttleXpress-$37
    Total = $746....Carputer = Priceless

    You have to use pure sine wave invertors to run a UPS.

    tried it didnt work power inverter> battery back> power supply.
    power inverter makes battery back up think it has a bad power source.


    169.00 for sine wave inverter + 69.00 ( 19.00 + 40.00 rebate you will never see) = 238.00/ 199.00 for opus ( shut down control, reliable,works every time ) i know what i have. what will you be getting soon?
