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.

comment How can I attach structure via oval holes in panel struts in a panel van?
If you are attaching free hanging bins to the wall the hardware must support the weight vertically. If the frame sits on the floor it will be holding the weight and the wall anchors merely hold it in place.

What type of storage units are you trying to attach? Shelves or a cubical that will sit on the floor and attached to the wall only to prevent tipping?
