I have a 12v solar panel. Will it be enough to charge my Asus 1000HE netbook? Answered

I just want to mod my netbook.

You will need to regulate the panel so the laptop receives a trickle charge rather than un-even pulses of electricity. I believe this would have to be attached to the battery rather than the netbook's DC in port. Oh and it's 3A, 36W.

How do you get "un-even pulses" of electricity from a solar panel ?

It was me trying to explain that the level of light would effect the voltage. Pulses seemed right then but sounds wrong now.

that depends on the watts, and how many watts the netbook consumes do you have the the watts?
