Need an AC Battery
[Return to Topics]

Why can't we get an AC battery to hook onto our powerline , then we would have lots of backup when the power went out.

Ain't no such thang as an AC battery. But if you did hook it up you'd have to reverse the pos neg poles 60 times a second. Kinda like flyin to florida...

Boy would your arms be tired.

The AC battery will work fine IF you have a reosistor hook up to a fanistat.........I think.

I was in one of them batteries with those very guns that are pictured there for 13 years. Well, we had the old M114 "Pigs" for the first few years but then they gave us the new M198s. Both were 155mm. Believe it or not, that M198, even though about twice as long as the old one, was much easier to handle.
I think about it some times and remember the fun we had. Lots of good guys. Just like a family.

They would be fun getting hand at using Les. Have to ask you more about them some time.

Sure there are AC electricity storage systems. That's how a solar power system works. People with solar power use just the regular AC appliances. Whatever problems you can think of, there is a solution. That's the state of today's technology.

I don't think so Tim...

They run 'banks' of batteries (DC) and then an inverter for the appliances that require AC...

Salmoneye, hwo has not seen a Sine wave in decades...

you have to keep the ac moving when you store it so you would need an elestric pump and you wouldn't have anywhere to plug it in

Do like the blonde computer geek did, plug the outlet strip back into itself...

Dang, why did I just flash on San Francisco again?

Because batteries by their very nature are DC.
Except for artillery batteries. But I don't think you want one of them.

You could try a NAPA in San Francisco. They prolly got AC-DC batteries...

connect a diode from then AC source to the battery, and a transformer to convert back to AC afterwards
