Actually what you need is a battery voltage source which is higher than the
required voltage and an regulator. This is often done with a dc to dc
converter...something which runs on say 10 to 14 vdc and puts out the
necessary supply voltages. I suppose you could (in this case) just buy a dc
to ac line voltage converter...like the one you use in your SUV to run the
charger for the laptop, etc.
