Ok, so you get 60 watts of continuous AC power

for what purpose, what runs on 60 watts besides a dim bulb ?

I run (ran, actually, cuz its snowing and I doubt I'll ride any time soon) a domestic heating pad off a 75w inverter.

Handy, too, for such things as camera battery rechargers, laptops, etc.

A biker without full-face protection should only ride as fast as the slowest hornet.

a heating pad will work just as well on 12volts (what is an electric vest- just a heating pad that's designed to be worn)

Nope. Resistance is too high to work off 12v.
