Excess Electrical Capacity

Excess Electrical Capacity (EEC) is the amount of excess electrical power your vehicle has in reserve to power additional devices (appliances) without draining the vehicle battery. This number varies widely depending on the manufacturer, model and sometime model year of the vehicle. How to calculate EEC can be found here.


Low Power Appliances

Most vehicles (even scooters) can operate many small appliances like cell phones and GPS units all at the same time. This is due to their low power requirements. It is safe to charge the battery or power all of the devices on this list from most any vehicle:

Cell Phones
GPS Units
Radar Detectors
Personal Music Systems
Bike-to-Bike Communicators
Laptop Computers


High Power Appliances

Due to their relatively high current draw you may have to limit the number of these devices that you run at one time:

Heated Vests35 Watts to 45 Watts
Heated Grip Wraps20 Watts
Heated Gloves20 Watts to 25 Watts
Heated Jacket Liners  70 Watts to 100 Watts
Accessory Lights110 Watts

Power Outlet Types

Decide what outlet type is best for your application(s). While more than one outlet can power multiple devices at the same time, it is also common to put more than one outlet on a vehicle. Sometimes this is required for high current loads like passenger heated clothing, or for devices in the front and rear of the vehicle like a GPS (right front) and a heated jacket liner (rear left). The four most common outlets are shown. Consider size, vibration, reliability, ease-of-use, location and how many electrical devices you may wish to power in the future.

Electrical Appliances

Consider what types of appliances you will power now and in the future. The chart below can help clarify which power outlet types are commonly used for each appliance listed.
