Scotty, how long of a duration are you talking about. If it's under an hour you can use a backup unit that they sell for computers. I believe it's called a "UPS", uninterupted Power Supply. I think you can get it at any Computer Store.
I hope this helps.

I don't know about 6 hours. You would need a small generator for that length of time.
