35W HIDs with slim ballasts appear to draw an actual 40-44W from what I've read. All I can say is my voltmeter has never provided such steady numbers or allowed so much heat to be provided before.
I am looking to save some power to run a pair of Solstice VisionX lights, heated grips, and a Tourmaster heated vest. I am considering either HID conversion or EB low beam kill switch. After reading thisw thread it seams that the actual 10-12 watt savings per light that you get from the HID conversion don't measure up to the 55w savings that you get from killing one of your low beams. If I put manual switches on everything then I would have the most control over my piwer consumption.
