What was I thinking!?!?!?
I am not sure why I chose to use the inverter to hook up to the laptop on this trip. I also had a simple gizmo that plugs into a 12 volt
socket, and then into the laptop. I did not need to use the inverter:
I originally bought the inverter to charge up digital camera batteries while driving in the VW for extended trips. So, it is probably safe to say I won't be using the inverter much when camped. I can charge batteries for the camera when I have the Honda running.
My laptop battery is getting on in years and use, so if I just run on battery power, I may get about an hours worth of use before termination. I should probably bite the bullet and pick up a fresh battery.
