I don't know if this is where to post this or not. If not, please let me know where to post. Anyway, here's the situation. The attachment is a picture of my mobile workstation. I want to know if it would be possible to wire an outlet to a motorcycle (or car) battery, mount it at the base, and run my laptop from that outlet? Please let me know if it's possible or not. Thanks

Nope, car and motorcycle batteries are DC. The laptop needs AC to run the power supply for the laptop. You'll need to use a power inverter to get the power you need. I would go for 100 watts or more. I know that my laptop needs 90 watts to run. Not sure how long it would run without an alternator recharging the battery though.
