hardwiring Labtop DC-DC converter directly to battery. ie bypass any switching relay
Ok so here is my plan. I have a netbook kav60 acer that I will be adding to my build.
The idea is to keep the computer in sleep mode when not in use which will be wired directly to the car battery drawing a minimal
~1watt at 19Vs or 50mA's.
now a normal battery has around 70A/h, so putting a small 50mA drain on it would theoretically be an ineffectual drain on the battery. 10 days in sleep would still draw less then 20A hours when adding other components and taking P/S inefficiencies into account.
SO, does anyone know of any reason that this idea would be a bad idea?
