I'm trying to find out Max wattage load
« on: October 24, 2016, 08:15:46 PM »
I have a Cforce 800 and I've looked all over the intro webs with no avail. I'm trying to find Max load for the charging system in watts. This is for a light bar for better night vision. I own a horse ranch and feed alot of times at night an with winter we have very limited light during the day so any thing will help. I want a light bar and spot lights led

Most of the light bars take less juice than they claim. Unless you are running a bunch of other stuff, I wouldn't worry about it too much. I was going to use a relay for mine triggered by the high beams.

You have 10 amps extra for accessories (actually slightly more but stay safe). LED light bars use about a 1/2 the power of the watts they have so if you go to a watts to amps converter on the new, convert what it has to amps, then cut that in half and you will be close. For example, my 120watt light bar converted shows to use 9.6 amps but in reality my amprobe says it uses 4.6 amps. Here's one converter:

Well that makes more sense I was looking at a 100w light bar and 2 25w spot lights so I should have plenty of room amp wise

My 36 inch light bar pulled 18 amps.  It has like 80 LED's in it.  Unfortunately I sometimes also have to use my Z for work on the farm.  I have not had any issues with charging or performance.  Still running the stock battery.

what wire kit did you use my battery is going to be 6" away from my light bar. Is there a short kit you can recommend.

You can use a relay to turn on the light bar from a switch or when you turn on the high beams. No kit that I know of, but there is a ton of wiring suggestions out there you can find. Make sure it is on a keyed circuit.
