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.
