Brilliant – thanks Darren.
Brilliant – thanks Darren. Yes, I’ve got a split charge relay down on my parts list. Do you know how I work out which amperage I’d need? I’m looking at 2 x 225 Ah batteries and 2 x 100W solar panels. I’ll also be getting an MPPT controller.

In terms of the laptop charger, should the laptop have a maximum voltage listed on the back panel or do they pretty much tend to cover all models? I guess my partner will be nervous in case there’s any power surges but I’m assuming the controller will take care of that.

Presumably I don’t need an inverter to use an onsite electric hook (just a mains charging unit like this? https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004TLF53S/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=6738&creativeASIN=B004TLF53S&linkCode=as2&tag=jugglingpirat-21

Thanks again – much appreciated.
