Comment(by rsmith):

 Replying to [ticket:12687 jvonau]:
 > We along with several other deployments find having to have AC present
 to be problematic when your using charging racks or solar-panels. You can
 boot the OS but without upgrading the firmware due to missing AC you might
 have erratic behaviour leading to support calls.

 No.  If you bypass the AC check then your erratic behavior support calls
 will change to bricked machine support calls.  Bricks that you can only
 fix with an external programmer.
