I would add one little detail, 48 to 50 volts DC is high enough that, under the right circumstances, it could mess you up.
100 Watt converter/inverter isn't going to get you much more than a few LED lights.

I would be more concerned about maxing out your 100W inverter. Inverters tend to heat up, which is very destructive to electronic devices. If the fan has to come on to cool it, it's using some of its own allotment. If it doesn't have a fan, it should, if you want it to last. The 100W inverters I've bought in the past didn't last more than a few years with daily use. A quality 300W or 500W inverter would give you a little more room to expand into another room, and not make the thing work so hard, and not cost much more.
