With this discussion on Prius as a UPS, I thought I'd share some photos of a 
battery backup that I put together for my APRS digipeater station this week.

The station has VHF and UHF transceivers and a Pentium III computer.  This 
will also provide backup power for several wireless Internet links.

This is the first such modification that I've made to install larger 
(external) batteries to a UPS.  I've been testing it for about a day and it 
seems to work as expected.  I'm interested to know if anyone else has done 
this and if there are any issues that I should be concerned with.
