**amps**. Toss in the high beam at 130 watts combined and you're sucking down about 11

**amps**. All four

**headlights**on tip the scales at 20

**amps**.

Also asked, how much current do LED headlights draw?

To put it in perspective, each **headlight** bulb **draws** about 6 or 7 **Amps** each. 8 **amps** is nothing.

Also, how much current does a car draw? Today's **car** takes about 2.5 **amps** for the injection pump, and just under 2 **amps** for the instrument panel. A gasoline **car would** probably have similar **draws**. If the cooling fan was needed, and electric cooling fan can **draw** from 10 to 25 **amps**, usually at the low end of that range.

Besides, how many amps does a motorcycle headlight draw?

Your average high beam (for a normal **headlight**) is 55 or 65 watts. In a 12 V circuit, that's less than 6 **amps** nominally. If you put in a 10 **amp** fuse, you **should** be ok. I have looked at some **amperage** vs wire diameter charts and 20 **amps** seems a bit too close to the 24 **amp** maximum for my comfort levels.

How many amps does a 12 volt 50 watt bulb draw?

a **12 volt 50 watt bulb**, (call it 48) **should pull** about 4 **amps** from the transformer secondary.
