12 volt plug

Will my 12 volt system power a heated coat liner?  This boat is way to fun to wait for spring, but it's COLD on SE Pa.

With either a 15w or 40w charging system, I can't way whether it will keep up with the current draw or not. Do you know what the liner is rated at? If you hook up a volt meter then plug the coat liner in, you'll see the voltage drop. Then bring the engine up to no higher than 3000 rpm and see if the voltage comes back up. If you on the water then full throttle is fine. Just don't want to over rev it if you're not.

Thanks Tom. I've decided to get a battery powered vest or coat, so I an use it anytime.
I'll use the plug for my electronic gear.

I dry fitted a comfy boat seat, so they will make it much better!

Cool, would be cool if you could share a link to the vest. Would be neat to read up on it.

Pics of the finished seat setup would be cool too!  \./8

I haven't ordered a vest yet. I'm also looking at heated base layers. The average cost is around $150-$200.

I'll be be working on the seat in the next couple weeks, and will post some pics when done.

Here's some guide on how to buy one. I like one until i saw the safety issue. But no one is complaining yet so the technology behind this might be reliable now.

Thanks! That site has tons of information.
I'll be doing plenty of research before shelling out $400.00.
I was going to order a much cheaper coat, and now know it would have been a big mistake.
