If that used computer place has UPS get a couple and get new batteries
for them if they are not refurbished.
I got 2 used free beacuse the batteries were dead and took out the small
batteries and installed the standard 100 amp hour batteries to back up 6
servers 2 years ago. I too was having up to 10 hour power outages.Now
the backup will go for at least 10 hours with no line power. We had a 6
hour outage last fall and the system kept right on working.
