Another solution is to have one suitably-sized linear supply
trickle-charging a battery that runs the gear. I'm gradually
adopting this strategy as an alternative means of UPS for my
computer networking infrastructure. In addition to the obvious
noise reduction possibilities, conventional UPS units are power
