I want to get a Gerbing Heated Vest, and Gerbing states their specs as
Source 12-volts DC
Current 4.5 amps
Watts 54 watts
Can the Max handle the Grips running as well as a heated vest plugged in? I am really good with bikes overall, have not messed too much with electrical stuff like this just yet. I do not want to damage anything and/or drain the battery while riding.
Thoughts and thanks!!!
wattages assume that the grips are turned to max and that you run the Gerbings liner at maximum without a temperature controller.
I would not advise the latter, certainly.
Hope this helps.
