    UPS - damn that makes allot of sense CDM

    Looks like I'm going to buy the smallest UPS that I can find that will survive a 2 second crank. Looks nicer and is a nicer looking solution.

    Yeah I know a tank circuit is basically an DC-DC ups solution. Makes sense. The only pre-made tank circuit that I've seen though has to have many inputs and outputs, doesn't look very nice (doesn't come in a box or anything - looks like a big transistor with a huge heatsink mounted on a PCB) and won't accept anything lower than 8 AWG power wire realistically. I also wonder what kind of load a tank circuit could handle?

    although i havent built mine yet, the plan is simply to go with an inverter and a standard PSU. but now that i have finally been able to find the power rating on this thing (PSU says 160W max), i may end up going the 150w opus route if it fits the budget.
