Usually there is no problem with "low watt" device connected to a hefty 
source as long as the voltage is right. For example, you can connect 
your 4W night light and your 300W halogen to the same 110V mains.

However, your battery could supply 50A if by chance there is a short 
circuit on the Soekris board! So, you may want to add at least a 2A 
automotive fuse.
