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.
