Granted you have to see what the laptop or lights or anything else planned draws... but the amps for the full 350W is around 28A or so.

If so the wiring and socket should be fused for 20 so the inverter only will be capable of around 250W.
30 amp fuse and appropriate wiring is needed to properly handle a 350watt inverter. However, if itís only being used for a laptop computer then you could get away with a lot less. Check the power needs of the computer.

There are 30amp fuses available if you need to go that big.
