The whole setup with big LCD screen and speakers draws less than 200 watts, while the solar panel has a maximum output of 20 watts. So, yes, the panel has to charge the battery for a few hours before you can start playing. But once the battery is fully charged and with the constant trickle charging of the photovoltaic panel, the system can stay up and running for about 8 hours.
Excellent idea. Check out this video at Tom's Hardware to see the creation and exhibition of the first ever solar Wii.
