comment 1960s bomb shelter a safe place to wait out a tornado?
Many storm prone communities now allow you to register your shelter with a Public Safety Official. In the event the house did collapse they would be aware that you may be trapped in your shelter.

Although not an area of my expertise, I would be concerned with two issues. The hollow door and if the house collapsed into the cellar would you have a means of exit.

My comment was just to inform the OP that there are inverters large enough to power the charger at a reasonable cost.

Have you considered cost. My 18v Ryobi charger draws less than 80 watts. Harbor Freight sell units for $20. Likely cheaper than a name brand 12v to 18v charger.
