Hey, if you dont't want/can't take it, then share the love.

I've heard reports that an Onyx, not fully loaded might take around 9
amps.  A challenge should take less since I don't believe it would have
anything to replace the powerdraw from the graphics boards.  

If you have two suns and a PC, assuming the two suns are something like
SS10 or SS20 or U1, then you just might be able to power a challenge
from the same circuit.

Otherwise, time to add another circuit.
