    Are you talking about plugging the device into an inverter that is powered by a battery, or changing the wiring of the device and adding battery compartments to it?

    Most camper and motorhome sites have these inverters. Quite common actually.

    Battery(ies) --> inverter ---> transformer --> plug it in.

    This is to make it all from scratch. You can buy these for campers, as a previous poster suggested. Also, most automotive stores have these to run off your cigarette lighter. Everything is in a nice, neat package. You'd just need to splice the wires to run off a 12v battery of your favorite flavor.

    Costco had a great deal on a 1000wt inverter a couple weeks ago for $50. Be sure to use 2-gauge or 0-gauge wire to hook it up to your battery as 80-90amps is A LOT of current.
