Watts?? Heated Gear Empty
PostSubject: Watts?? Heated Gear   Watts?? Heated Gear I_icon_minitimeSun Oct 04, 2015 8:37 pm

I use Widder heated gloves and vest and occasionally chaps.  I just don't know if I have to be afraid of running down the battery.  When on the highway I assume there is enough charge to handle it all but while riding slowly through town, or at a light, what do I have to do, shut it off each time?  Does anyone use a meter of some sort to keep an eye on it?  What would happen if I overdue it?  Would the bike just shut off?  Thanks Dan

In 12 years in the Silverwing community I have never ever seen anyone place enough demand on the electrical system to overwhelm it while riding This includes full heated gear, all electronics and extreme extra lighting all at the same time. So don't worry about it.

If you're worried about draw with the engine off, Pick up a Shorai 19ah battery to give you some extra juice if you are using electrics without the motor running.

If I remember correctly the alternator puts out around 450W which is comparable to a Goldwing even though the scooter has a lot less electrical demand on it. I never had a problem running high beams and my electrically heated gloves and jacket liner in stop and go traffic. The battery voltage didn't drop at all..

The charging system on the S/W is fairly robust and you should not have a problem with the equipment you are using. In any case you probably are looking to replace the factory battery in about 4 years.
