is the mac mini battery powered?

I was looking at buying a mac mini and using it in college and was wondering if it was battery powered because it says built in power supply.

    No it doesn't have its own battery. It is like a desktop. Desktops also have built in power supplies, but they don't work if the system isn't plugged into an outlet. The power supply simply regulates electrical flow to the hardware components and outputs like USB ports.
