Is there a lithium battery for desktop computers out there or how could I build one?

I live in a part of the world where electricity seems to be a major problem. I installed an expensive UPS to manage the fluctuations so my desktop would not go off randomly. It works most of the time, but the computer does restart a few times a day because of electrical fluctuation.

A friend and I were having a discussion about it recently, and he said it would be nice if someone would design a lithium battery for desktops so if the power goes out, at least you don’t lose all your work (despite the UPS).

So my questions is: do any such solutions exist? Can anyone suggest a setup where a lithium battery takes over a 750 Watt desktop computer?
