Using Ohms law the current draw on 85 Watt bulbs would be 6.53846 amps at 13 volts DC.BusterW said:Gary, from your findings on 2.98 AMPS DC draw on the lights alone, can that translate into .085 AMPS (2.98 amps / 35 watts) so that you can multiply that out and get the draw on the 85 watt bulbs. If so, what would that convert to wattage-wise?
Lastly, how does outside temp relate to amperage draw? Is it higher or lower at higher temps. I would assume higher draw for higher temps but you're the electrical engineer, not me.

Some electrical items such as winches tend to run harder drawing more current when ambient temperatures are colder. I should also mention that when the vehicle was up to operating temperature the systems current dropped 1.34 amps DC. Most electrical specs are usually based on an operating temperature range. Which is why I through that in.
