Power went out at school so we wired LED lights to a deep cycle battery and a 200watt inverter then got back to work.

How well could you actually see to work and how long did your battery last?

We could see well enough to work on integrating the code and creating drawings for fabrication. We were running on a deep cycle battery not sure of specs but it was able to power all the lights and 4 laptops for four hours

About two weeks ago power was out at our shop as well - the team met and had strategy/scouting discussion anyways, and power came back about halfway through the meeting. Fortunately, the emergency lights were on at the school, so we had enough to see!
