That's a good idea. Never thought of that. There are so many different choices I could go with. Just trying to figure out what is gonna be the easiest and best route to go with.

it's the same math......

it just has a time component tacked on, which is no different than calculating how much current you've pulled out.

A*T is all an AH is.

so if you're putting 30w out of a panel back into a battery @ 12V nominal you're charge rate is 2.5AH. practically it will be slightly less, but close enough for camper lights.

There's a video floating around on reddit of a topless girl riding in a stunt plane. Boobs+gforce is interesting.

Wouldn't think it's much.
Best deal going is the flat led strips. There's a 1w led every 3 inches and you can cut them to whatever length you want. I would run a couple strips on the ceiling, wire them to 12v with 18 ga wire and a dipole switch so you can turn on one or both and then down to a battery box.

Same lights that Mac used to convert his overhead flourescents to led in the gulfstream. Best part is they're $10 for 15 feet and the connectors are cheap too. Warm white is probably the nicest for inside.

The connectors snap on the end so you don't need to solder. You're in it for $16 and have more than enough to put light wherever you want.
