I think after a little though, using an inverter would be much more efficient. if nothing else, you cant really power the monitor via battery, and a computer without a monitor is very hard to work with. (unless you are lucky enough to have a VGA input for your brain.) The trick is charging All the batteries equally and efficiently. -Travis >From: "Al Allworth"
