    Just bought some KC daylighters 130w driving lights. I was suprised when I went to wire them up and they only have a 20 amp fuse and relay. If I do the math 130x2/12 = 21.667 amps. So am i adding something wrong or are they just bulshitting about the wattage?

    Alright found the answer just in case anybodys wondering. Even though the battery is 12 volt most alternators put out 13.8v current so 130x2/13.8= 18.8 amps. It works but they are skimping on the wiring.
