Amp Consumption At 12 Volts DC

Amp Consumption At 12 Volts DC

This photo is of the TV on pause while plugged into the boats 12 volts system.

The TV when running the DVD, paused, on 12 volts, consumes 3.9 amps or 3.9 ampere hours per hour of use.

It should be noted that I left it paused for over 5 minutes and the voltage & current never fluctuated. I made sure to hold voltage steady in all tests so as to get as accurate a data shot as I could.

1/60s f/4.0 at 70.0mm iso160 full exif
