Lightbulb 240w LED Light Bar

I ordered a 42 in, 240W LED light bar for my toy. Don't freak out, I stole it for $79 not a $1,000.

Now its got me to thinking that the stock battery isn't going to work. Who else has one and will the battery handle the load or does the stator not put off enough to keep the light and the system running. Stranded and me aren't exactly on speaking terms.

Has me thinking I need to do a reconfigure on the battery tray and put a real battery in it.

Side note: I have the battery connected to a trickle charge when not in use.

You should not have any problems at all with your stock battery, I have all kinds of accessories on mine with no problems, let's use very little power at all

That is over twice the watts that the stock Hi & low beam lights draw. 27watts per bulb on the stack lights. But others have used them with no issues!

Thanks for explaining the LEDS, helps me to understand how you get away with all of your lights. I will need to pick your brain next month!

Thanks for all the replies. Feeling better about it.

EBAY:

Type this in the search if you want the size I got.

240W led light bar

There are few ads that appear to look very similar. they are all different User IDs and all are coming our of LA. Seem to have a few ending a day. Caught one ending just right and snagged it.

I tried to attach a link to one i just found ending in 5 hours for around $50 right now but I don't have the mimimum required post yet to do that.
