That is a difficult one,

That is a difficult one, because even with an external battery, that battery will not be able to keep the mesh AP powered for x time.  Every mesh install I have done, the customer had to provide constant power, this means that either power was already provided, or they ran power to each mounting location.  There are also solar power panels that you can add for the mesh AP also, but would have to figure out how to add that in the circuit along with the current photocell.
