Battery powered equipment

Any opinions/advice on the best battery powered air pumps or other such equipment needed during a power outage? I am new to the hobby, have only had my tanks up and running for about 6 weeks and thought I would have time before our Ohio winter starts to get my emergency stuff ordered. Well, we have had 3 storm related power outages in the past 6 weeks. So Iím taking this as a sign. Getting ready to buy some stuff, so any expert advice is appreciated. Also thinking about a home, gas powered generator, but until then I would like to have some battery powered stuff on hand to at least run my sponge filters. Thanks for any advice.

I use a battery pack. I'll send you the link. Kind of pricey but very useful.

I also use it for camping
