    I believe the battery is connected right after the primary transformer. In this case i think there is only 1 transformer putting out 12V which also charges the battery. A frigging online ups in principal at a fraction of cost + just 1 single conversion AC to DC.

    How come psu/ups OEMs are not coming up with something like this?

    This is a concept. If PSUs came with a backup battery what would UPS makers do? Tader to 12 ta bajto.

    re bole ki?? ei concept is almost 20+ years old. There are lots of industrial PSU that can take both AC and DC (battery bank) input simultaneously. But these are not made for typical pc yet.

    retail consumer UPS segment will die soon if they cant come up with more efficient power delivery system. Preferably with a power factor of at least .9 or above.

    I just hope that this will soon become more of a regulatory requirement.

    The conventional UPS+PSU Battery->Inverter->Transformer->Transformer again->Switching Mode Power converter almost loses 40%-50% of energy. If only PSU manufacturers and UPS manufacturers would team up and release a single device.....
