Battery powering psu powering pc

Im currently trying to build a battery powered portable pc but i know ill need the cables from the psu to power the components so im thinking of using the psu like a power hub. The thing im having trouble with is finding a good battery, charger for it and a way of plugging the battery into the psu which i was thinking of getting a mini power strip and plugging the psu into that. I need about 400 watts all up. any ideas?

You better off with building a normal PC and bring an Uninterruptible Power Supply, or battery generators with a wall plug.

A laptop would make things a lot easier. It's exactly what laptops are for. Is there a reason you don't want to use a laptop?

Linus has videos recommending then. Go check them out

If my answer is correct or is helpful please mark it as the solution. Quote me in your post to summon me. Beware that after summoning me i'll only leave the thread after finding the answer. I'm a programmer and cyber security expert so I can also be summoned to help in any Coding Projects and to help if you're hacked .

The bigger battery the longer it will work. Regular battery is around 15 - 25 kg
