    thats the input I'm looking for thanks Chris
    im curious, do you have the exact total amperage that your kit installed would draw? i'd like to compare it to what a heated shield draws out of curiousity

    Thats a good question I have a sled in the garage right now I will hook the fluke up to the lights and see what draw we have.

    Do they run off of AC and DC? Maybe that's where somebody caused a fire? My heated shield is 12 volts AC.

    for now just using 5 9volt batteries in parallel. i've thought aobut doing other things but this is my start for now. took a tupperware container and drilled a small hole for 2 wires to pas through and used a desicant pad to keep the condensation down.

    Thats what I figured would work. I want to wire it up in such a way that I can leave the lights on if we stop somewhere at night. LEDS draw so little I would think the 9 volts would last a while, but I think you would get better results from something bigger. Only further testing will tell.

    I bought one of my strings into my work were we have a DC voltage supplied. The difference from 9volt to 12 volts so unnoticable even with the lights off. now in true darkness and with snow it might be difference. but at the same time with the tempature drop the voltage drops so a fully charged 12 volt battery in 0 degree weather might only have 10-11 volts.

    Can you have the Leds run off the headlight without a battery?
