Are there computers (desktops) that have built in back up batteries?

Asked by Elumas (3170points) November 28th, 2008

It makes sense to have about an hour more life if the power goes out to finish work and save. If there aren’t, why not?

No, but you can get uninterruptible power supplies. They plug in to the computer and provide power if the mains fail and can also shut the computer down before their battery goes.

UPS’s are the way to go :)

Or just use a laptop.
