    Enough Power from Battery

    If I use an inverter to power my computer in the boot of my (which has a 12 v outlet actually in the boot), and I will need to power an Amplifier to run the sound to the speakers. And finally I am going to have a TM-701L + TSK in the front of my car, will this affect the performance of my car battery?

    If you're operating your system while the car is running then no. If you're running your system while the engine is not off then yes. It'll drain the battery sooner or later.

    Other stuff, need more power?

    I am also planning a few additions to my mp3 player once it is in the car, firstly a USB hub in the front, looking at one a mains lead.

    Secondly, a wireless network card, then a web cam, USB digital radio, wireless keyboard. Would these or any other items need me to have more power, or would this all still run.

    I am only planning on using this when the car is on and running.
