Smile how long can u keep neons on

hi. was just wondering. how long do you think you can keep neons on without the ignition being turned on? if you make it direct to the battery how long do you think you can leave the neons on without draining the battery.. i think 3 hours is a good enough time for neons to be on?

Does anyone have any info or know anything about this?/

hey all,
Klasse i leave my neon's on when ever we drive from juhu to bandra and back at night for approx 2 hr's , it hasent given me a problem yet.
Best is to buy it on remote control for rs4600 at milan-sub from wasan or suraj motors. both are good and cheap.mine is connected directly to the battery so no hassel of starting the car every now and then. even if u are 20 feet away u can start the light's via remote , it's cool.

That depends on how much of current your neons draw from the battery,

time shold be less than capacity of the battery in Ah/(current drawn), This is time to completely drain the bat. You need to have around 60% of bat to start your engine again

Precisely. Well said.

A lot of people forget about leaving enough power to crank up the car again (which is the function that puts the most electrical load on the battery for those few seconds)
