If you need longer-lasting power, you need something along the lines of the Extreme 350 but that's much heavier and also require the ExtremeUI inverter if your laptop doesn't take direct 12V. (I have one, it's around 30 lbs)
This thing's designed for SMALL electronics, or just short charge. Tablet, phone, yes. Laptop, very short term.
For the solar side, the Boulder 30 is their bigger daisy-chain-able panel, and there's a frame for having up to 4 together, but it's significantly larger than the 15. Not to mention more expensive.
It's advertised differently, I read it gives a laptop 10 to 12 extra hours.
We lost power 5X this winter. I'll rely on the generator that hasn't failed us yet, until something better comes out.
Glad I didn't hit the large green button too fast.
