a) Use sealed 6v batteries. Get a charger when you buy the batteries.
Check the mAh rating to make sure you'll get the runtime you need.
Try to avoid using them in parallel unless you have to.
b) Use car batteries plus inverters (or even cars, inverters and a
couple long extension cables). Heavy, expensive, inefficient, but you
might have the kit
Thank you Blair! Now I know how to power the USRPs, but what is your idea of getting our PCs(Desktop Computers) powered outside? If the only way is to use laptops, 8 laptops should be required. That is really a huge number for us. :) Thank you!
