    Hello all,

    I was wondering if it is possible to put a laptop battery in a desktop computer, for the purposes of portability and power-cut protection. Has anyone done this before? Is it possible, but hugely difficult to do?

    Thanks,

    Casefan

    Forget it.
    Even if there was a way to convert and distribute the power from a Laptop battery, down to 12v, 5v, 3.3v etc etc. The current draw from a PC would flatten a laptop battery in minutes.

    If you want "portability", integrate a real UPS in the case. :dremel:

    You would want to buy a high quality UPS, even said you would only get around 20 minutes from one.
