nifty hack, but highly dangerous. I would conduct this hack only if I had a detached Garage, and could place the battery packs and the charging unit there, and run a heavy gauge power cable to my house from the UPS to where my Computer equipment was, but, with the right pack setup, you could possibly get away with running your whole house, albeit limited. Say it could power the Fridgerator, to keep food from going bad, the computer, to shutdown and save files, and possibly a radio and a phone, for emergency use.
It would take alot of batterys in packs to go for 24 hours in a situation like that. but it could be very worth it
