It would be interesting to see the results if someone who has this sort
of setup would report how long it will run their devices.

I imagine that in the heat you could just run an air pump, or even the
filters, but in the winter you might need to run the heater too.

I imagine a deep-cycle battery would be better suited to the job, but I
don't know.
