I'd like to add some auxiliary lights to my utility vehicle. Currently it has (2) 37.5 watt headlights. The alternator is rated at 13 amps and has a 32-amp hour,295cca battery. How many watts can I safely add to the system?
In AC, a 120 Watt bulb pulls 1 amp. To figure this you divide Volts by Watts to get Amps, so if DC is the same, 12 Volts times 13 Amps should be 156 Watts. I run 6 big hallogen lights on my JD 430 in the winter with a blinking light, 3 head lights and two tail lights and have never had a problem. I don't remember what the Watts of the Lights are or the Amps of the Alternator, but I will try to look it up for you.
