This is enough solar power to run my work laptop ALL DAY. I'm a software engineer by trade. My laptop has to be on all day. This is enough solar power to make that happen. I've been running my work laptop off of this setup for a little over a week now. I even had a couple of cloudy days and some rain. Haven't had to use the grid yet.
