Hi guys,

I have two ups batteries though ups has got some defect but batteries are in good condition. I want to make an emergency lighting system for home with the battery. I have 12V 7.2 Ah @ 20 hr battery. Is this an possible step? Also, how to recharge the battery? Thanks..

Feasible yes, with two batteries you could switch when one got low.  The obvious choice for recharging would be a solar panel as electricity may not be available from any other source.  LED's would be the best choice for bulbs due to the low current draw.    

If you don't stand for the flag then you will fall for anything!
