Heres a thought, Our workplace flooded and they ended up scrapping a load of wet UPS's, so theres a load going spare. For ages I've been meaning to use a PC as an embedded system on a large mobile robot. The thing thats always stopped me doing this is making a lightweight power supply with a negative voltage. Im toying with the idea of using a UPS as a mobile power source for a normal PC.

I know that in theory is electrically inefficient to use a UPS and a PC power supply together like this for mobile power, but I.m toying with the idea. Has anyone done anything quite like this? If so did it work?
