I worked on cesium standards (5071A)
at HP/Agilent with Len Cutler of flying clock
fame.  You better believe that batteries are
time related.  We jumped through all sorts of
hoops to get the 5071A power consumption down
to a few dozen watts so it could run off of
batteries.  The other reason for minimizing
power consumption was to avoid fans.  HP also
used to sell auxiliary battery systems in
case the user needed more battery run time
than the internal battery was capable of.
