I recently switched from an iPhone 5 to a Galaxy S4. The one thing I really miss is the Apple power adapter. I'd pay the money to have a few of them laying around because of their convenience.

On the flipside, I am thinking about going inductive for charging on the S4... who even needs a cable? :)

The continuous power recommendation above is probably your best bet.

Enterprise level gear is good stuff, but it can fail as well, part of what makes it enterprise is the service agreements and rapid replacement you can get on them. Really for a small network that would be a waste of money.

Would you buy a tractor-trailer rig to get stuff from a lumber yard occasionally when a pickup truck would suffice? Just keep said pickup truck well maintained and it should be fulfill your needs and be less expensive than the corporate solution.

I realize that was kind of a stretch but hopefully it helps to illustrate the point.
