Lilliput Monitor power consumption while in standby
As I am cleaning up some of my wiring in my car, it would help some with fuctionality if I wired my lilliput monitor directly to the battery via the power conditioner that is provided with it. What I am trying to figure out is if that will result in a quick discharge of my battery. I know it uses 9W during operation. Searching through the 18 pages of results gave some info. Specifically a couple of post report that standby mode would draw 16 mA (for example: http://www.carnetix.com/additional_i...llyCurrent.htm) - Which by itself would take about 4 months to discharge my Optima YellowTop (55 ah / 0.016 a). I drive my car more often that that... So, the answer should be no -- but, I have been known to screw these things up :rolleyes: . Is there any reason why I couldn't power the monitor via my battery?
