The head light is a dual position HID

***I think what I'm about to say is correct***

The PIAA's are converted to 35 watt HID's, they each pull 3.3 amps (6.6 total)
The halogen that were in them pulled about 20 amps each!

The CREE's should pull 2.5 amps each (5 total)

I've decided to run the Power-let and the Gerbing directly off the battery (fused of course)

The fuse block is rated a 30 amps and yes, it's a real nice product.


Yes, it's the learning that the fun part of all this.
You'll be fine with that alternator and power consumption.
You should be able to easily run the Gerbing and Power-Let from the fuse panel. Not going straight off the battery is why you bought it.
