He's a funny guy, that oval window dude. Laughing



Why dual batteries? Seems a little unnecessary on these gerbil-powered carts we drive...

NINE lights? Unless they're LED, you may have some trouble.

To quote (sorta) a line from a movie that was before jox's time-

You're gonna need a bigger alternator.

("We're gonna need a bigger boat...") Laughing

Are you planning on playing a baseball game at night in front of the car? Why all the lights?

900 watts at 12 volts = 75 amps for lights alone. A second battery doesn't insure that you have more power available. It's kinda like a second bank account.... You can't get more money just because you have another account. You need to make bigger deposits to make bigger withdrawals.

Add the power from running your engine, tail lights, turn signals, radio, cb, dome lights, etc... and add about 25% for a cushion to make sure your battery can recharge after you use a big chunk of juice cranking your engine on a cold wet day...


Whammo....

You're gonna need a 120 amp alternator to run those dudes. You're gonna use lot of precious HP turning that alternator over, too.

Is it really worth it?

Only you can decide.

I'm definately going to run dual batteries. its is more convienent and puts less stran on your alternator. I had two batteries in my Jeep One for lights and pa system and the other for the rest of it. WOrked better wasn't having to worry about my lights being on when stuck in the dunes in the middle of the night! lol good times!

You could invest in HIDs... half the power draw for twice the light.

(Twice the cost though.)
