dryclean is on a distinguished road
I plan on using a Dell 5100 laptop I have and don't use much I also have Maptech lite with US Coastal charts and a usb GPS receiver.
My laptop draws 20 watts so a 250 inverter would be plenty and this is all I would be using it for

I'm concerned about battery draw and was going to install a 20watt solar panel with a charge controll unit

Do you think 20 watt panel is enough?
