Considerations of battery life aside (and also of how to wire the battery to the psu), could a laptop battery even produce enough current to run desktop components?

I was pondering the thought of making a DIY laptop and how many challenges you would run into, and this one struck me as being one of the hardest.

Hi :) 

I own a laptop repair company...

The answer is NO unless you have a stack of batteries and an inverter...

Even then , if YOU have to ask the question, you dont know enough about electrics to do it...

So no....lol :) 

All the best Brett :)

haha, I may be ignorant now on the subject of comp/electrical engineering as a first semester freshman, but hopefully in 4-5 years time I'll be an expert on this stuff
