And also, I think my iPhone which is also my satnav needs 2.5 amps for fast charging (but probably wouldnít blow the fuse by attempting to draw that much)
Many of us have fitted eastern Beaver harnesses under the seat (so the fuses are accessible). Mine currently has my Koso grips, my warmnsafe pigtail, and the 12v socket running off it. The kosos and socket are on the two switched outputs and the warmnsafe plug is on permanent. That way I can use that pigtail for a battery optimiser (but havenít had to so far in 2 years)
Hi Mike,
What fuse did you use for the 12v? The 15A? Thatís what i did because I have the 12v and my 40w spot lights running off the same lead with a splitter. 15a enough for most air compressors right? Iíll probbaly turn off the spots though when I need to use the compressor just in case
