Subject: UPS or Inverter selection - 26V/46A/1200watts

I need to demonstrate a newly developed battery sooner than expected.
So, I have to either choose a UPS/inverter to demonstrate that the
developed battery could be used for real applications.
The battery I used has the following caracteristics:
- The battery has a transient time of 4mns. This means that it won't
supply enough energy (electricity) until it reached its steady state,
that is after 4mns.
The UPS solution and problem associated with it
I came up with the conclusion that I need to use a UPS with an
internal battery. Which UPS could be suitable to buy and if possible
why? I thought of using an online UPS, open it and connect my battery
at the output of the AC/DC converter. Is this feasible?
The inverter solution
Another solution would be to use an inverter and connect a Lead Acid
battery to it. I would insert a circuit between the lead acid and the
new battery. The output of this circuit would be connected to the
input of the inverter. The inserted circuit should control the switch
over from the Lead Acid battery onto the new developed battery. When a
problem arises with the new battery, then switch back onto the Lead
Acid. Is there any circuit of the shelf that can perform such task?
I was told that one simple application of the new developed battery
would be to recharge the Lead Acid one. Nothing very clever here, but
if I can recharge the Lead Acid after the 4mns transient (see above),
then the system would make more sense at the demonstration.
I appreciate any help on this matter.
