You should be OK recharging a torch.
I had a problem trying to run a laptop ......the laptop power supply was rated at under 50watts, the dc-dc was rated at 150 watts, so there should have been no problem....
The laptop power supply is switched mode, which means it takes quite a high starting current, which put the dc-dc into shutdown mode, so it didn't work.
I had to get a 300watt dc-dc version and wire it to the battery with a 20A fuse because the cigrarette lighter socket was fused at only 10A.
