    Surely a 5vDC USB feed off a laptop will work?

    Political Correctness
    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional illogical minority, rabidly promoted by a unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd ... by the clean end!

    Saw this in a pub - no idea why the wife does not see it so:
    I'm not opinionated ... I'm just always right!

    A couple of my colleagues have bought a USB power bank and then a USB to DC adapter and they say it works well.
    I cautioned that the router might not be 5 volts like USB but apparently it still works for them even with different voltages.
    It's not quite a UPS but may work for you.

    Those routers are 12volt.
    1 x alarm battery (R200)
    2 x spade connectors (R6)
    1m ripcord (R?)
    1 x male power jack (R8)
    Some soldering, test with multimeter, connect.

    Thanks all . Seems like Pups can just be left plugged in and forgotten ?

    I decided to go all out and get a Sherlo 6.4A backup power supply with 17Ah battery. Wifi for days, and a whole bunch of other relatively high amperage 12v outputs for whatever.

    For sure the Huawei B315 and B618 will not work as they need more than 8V from the normal 12V.

    Just bought a Meanwell DRC-60A http://meanwell.co.za/drc-60-series/
    and will run this in conjunction with an alarm battery to power both the Huawei ONU (12v 2A) and Asus Router (12V 1.5A).
    The alarm battery has powered both for around 5 hours, but then the voltage dropped to low and they switched off.
    So I hope it will last me through a Blackout cycle, if not I will upgrade the battery to something bigger.

    Another option is get a smaller GSM to WiFi mobile router?

    Huawei has various options.

    Do these come with backup batteries?

    they have an internal battery good for several hours, and you can run them from any cell phone battery bank or even a USB laptop port that provides 5VDC

    I've seen a separate 7V battery supply for Huawei LTE routers but not an itegrated unit.
