Heated Grip power
on: February 07, 2021, 01:45:28 AM
Does anyone know how much power the heated grips need? Amps or watts?
Trying to figure out if my canopener5 can handle the load. if it can I'm looking to rewire the grips to and have 10 levels of heat via the wonder wheel.

I would suspect its similar to Oxford, which have the following

"The technical data included in the instructions states that typical running voltage is between 13.5 and 14.3 volts.
Each grip requires 2.1 amps or 28 to 30 Watts, so practically speaking the total draw should be around 60 Watts"
