Dear Kenny, why not ditch the energy saving lamps and get a couple of 12v halogens or better still proper marine/motor-home 12v LED lamps and forget the inverter, you have listed nothing but the lamps that require mains and once the inverter losses are taken into account even those might not be as energy saving as they seem. To be honest you may need to charge a phone, rechargeable "dry" cells etc and I find a 150 watt "Maplin Special" does that well enough plus recharged the hand held vacuum cleaner and the odd rechargeable power tool.
