If your talking about a desktop PC then you'll need more then a couple of Li-ion batteries. I've seem people who have modded a car battery to take the place of the small sealed lead acid battries that come in a UPS. This extended there run time from about 45 Min to a couple of hours.

With 2 square feet to work with. You could have a bank of 4 car batteries wired in parallel to each other powering an inverter that will power your PC. You might be able to get 6 to 8 hours of use out of that. But you will need a power source and charge controller to charge the batteries again.

Would this be for a laptop or desktop? Have you looked into ups?
