    You can use a regular car battery and use an inverter to connect the minimum equipments.

    just buy a cheapy $100 generator from ACO or something, it will be enough to run most of the stuff on your tank, enough to keep it alive in an emergency. You figure your going to pay at least $50-75 by the time you buy a battery, battery back up, and whatever odds and ends to make it work. Plus they only last so long, a generator will last much longer if you keep gas in it.
