You have to find somebody (or a forum) who knows a lot about electronics. It would be a simple circuit, but for a absolute beginner it could be tricky. Friends of mine have thought about this as well, to build a backup battery for my Ipod.

Type "Electronics Forum" in google, and you get heaps of places that could help.

uninterruptable psu would not be worth it because i still need a current to run the shuttle

UPS's are designed to store a limited amount of power so that if there is a power failure, you have enough time to save your work and shut down
they are not designed to be used as a battery so you can run your computer off it all the time
