Please explain WATTS to me! Answered

 I know watts equal amps times volts. But why? What is the benefit? Hypothetically, I wanted charge a laptop with some batteries ( instead of with the charger cord). The charger cord says 65 watts or some such, but what does that tell me?  Is 65 watts the same as 13 volts at 5 amps? Or 13 amps with 5 volts? what voltage/amperage would I need to charge this laptop? Thanks!

New About Me (Please Read)

I am your about-average human being who occasionally stays on the computor too long. Some things that make me normal are: I hate school, I hate homework, I love music, I like football. Some things that make me different: I hate corn, I am a multi-talented musician, I like origami, I like death metal, I enjoy looking at arts, and I can burp on obey. Warnings: Do not post spam, rickrolls, or screamers. They tick me off and I get VERY spazzish. AND I HATE RAP. Tell/show me anything that has to do with rap, I will eat you alive down to your bone marrow. When you say something nice to me, I get a little hyper/excited. I am hyper most of the time I visit the chat room. When Someone bees negative, I get mad and you prob won't see me again for the rest of the day. Anyway, I am just your average person. SO DON'T RUIN IT.

Please Help Me with a Project

Hi:) So I'm pretty new to all the electronics stuff.  The extent of my training includes the Flashing LED heart kit from Radio Shack (I did have to solder some stuff). I have also done one other project with LEDs. Anyways, I'm trying to make this without my boyfriend's help.  He has had to help me with the others because this stuff goes over my head.. Anyways, I want to take a wooden box (like from Hobby Lobby) and put LEDs in it.  Initially I wanted it to work just by opening the lid, but since that seems kind of difficult, I would also accept a switch... SO, how do I do it? What kind of power would I need? Say I use 10 LEDs? Is that too many or what? I know I didn't mention the size of the box but I haven't bought one yet.  I don't want to start a fire, therefore, I'm not sure if the wall outlet (AC?) power is right or not. I appreciate your help in advance.

The tail light has 2 sections 1) the park/brake light and 2) the turn signal. I would like to make my turn signal section to light up some what dim when I turn on my parking lights and then when I activate my turn signal to flash brighter. Is there anyone who can help me with this? I tried connecting to my parking light wire to see if it would work with a resistor but it did not. HELP!!!!
