The best AA batteries are ~2.8Ah, and 1.5V - thats 4.2 WattHours. 4 of 'em would have 16.8 Watt hours of capacity, so, in a perfect world, they WOULD hold enough energy for 1 hour of operation. All you need to do is boost it from 6V to 240V.

8 AA, and you MIGHT get a car inverter to boost 12 to 230V,
