    That kind of thing is what they use for RV's and stuff.

    OTOH, you should see the inverter that powers all the AC equipment in the telco room where my servers are located.. There are stacks of gigantic wet cells floor to ceiling and a rack of charging/regulation equipment to supply a -48VDC.. Most equipment runs directly on this; however, there is quite a lot of AC stuff also, and this is supplied by a 50kW inverter from the -48VDC supply.

    The thing is the size of a large mini-fridge.
