Battery on my UPS is getting old so I'm looking to replace it. It's however expensive, and I'm wondering can I replace it with a normal car battery ? And while I'm at it, what about having many car batteries in parallel ? Or will it hurt the UPS ? Or is the worst case scenario that it will take an awful long time to recharge them !? Will the UPS be able to recharge them at all ?

No, the UPS wont be able to recharge them all. What sort of time are you looking for it to keep the system alive?
|19:25:43 Nov 7th 16 - ZeTa (VU Admin):|
5 hours, if possible 8 hours.

Any reason you wouldn't want a generator?
As soon as you start daisy chaining that many batteries, you got to start looking at cooling them and all the rest.

A generator needs manual action ... !?

Negative.. if you set it up properly
|19:23:59 Nov 8th 16 - Mr. Bling:|
no, it can have a drop off setting that allows it to kick in

|22:02:38 Nov 8th 16 - Mr. Bling:|

On further consideration I don't want to mess around with led acid and high power batteries. So an automatic transfer switch and a automatic generator would be ideal.

Just get a solar panel with a inverner good to go

you need to start up once in a while, check oil, that fuel doesnt get bad ,all those kind of things. Ask youtube, it teachs to do almost anything :D.

Zeta, might wanna check this stuff out.
|10:18:51 Dec 13th 16 - ZeTa (VU Admin):|
That looks nice, but not within budget (200-400$)
