Energy Usage of various accessories?

Wed Apr 11, 2012 11:40 am

I vaguely recall reading a post here that contained energy usage of various accessories (like headlights, heat seaters, stereo, etc). But I can't seem to find that post.

Does anybody recall such a post? Or did I imagine it?

I do not remember seeing a post detailing energy use of accessories, but all of the 12-volt accessories combined would be very low in power consumption compared to the heater and insignificant compared to the traction motor.

High beam headlights would be the largest 12-volt load at 65 watts each for a total of 130 watts.
