Converting To Battery Operated

Hi, I have a guitar amp that I want to convert to run on batteries so its portable but I don't know where to start.

I am hoping to do this the cheapest way possible, this is the information I have found on the back.

Voltage-230v
Frequency-50/60Hz
Fuse Type-5MM. 0.25 A Fast - BLO
Mains Power Consumption-12 Watts
Rated Output Power- 10 Watts-8 Ohm

This is all the information found on the back of the amp.

I have some 3.7v lithium ion rechargeable batteries kicking around that I could use.

Some options would be excellent, thanks in advance!!

Won't try and dissuade you...but the cheapest option would be to buy a new or used battery operated amp. You can probably find them all over the place at music and pawn shops.
