The real Mac - iMac or Mac mini do not have any batteries, what would happen when there is a power loss?
I am considering building a hackintosh with Fusion Drive, but before I do, I'd like to know whether it is stable.
Currently I have the OS X and Applications on the SSD, and a 2TB HDD divided into 2 partitions, one for Time Machine, which backs up all my content on the SSD, one for Data like movies and downloads. I am considering moving to the Fusion Drive.

As far as I understand it it would be as stable as any HFS+ formatted drive. Same strengths and/or weaknesses. I could very well be wrong though as I currently don't have one set up but should in the next month or so once I finish my NAS.

I was expecting it as weak as RAID-0.
