Why is RoadTrucker advertising this as a 600 Watt heater, instead of a 700 Watt heater, as the manufacturer indicates? The reason is simple. It draws 50 amps at 12 volts and that calculates (50 x 12) to 600 watts, not 700.
So how does the manufacturer get 700 watts? Are they wrong? Well.. Yes and No. It depends on the application. When the heater is connected to a standing battery, they are wrong (12 x 50 = 600). But if the heater is being used in a running vehicle, they are right. The operating voltage of a running engine is usually around 14 volts. 14 volts x 50 Amps = 700 Watts.
RoadTrucker feels that, this heater is advertised as a 12 volt heater and that means that it can be used with a standing battery, which does not produce 14 volts. Hence, we advertise 600 watts and not the 700 watts that Power Hunt and everyone else advertises.
NOTE: When you add your Power Hunt 12 Volt 600 Watt Heater to the cart, we will also add a 12 Volt Power Port that hooks to the battery via 8' of wire with 2 connecting rings on the end. If you already have one, then click on "remove" in the cart to remove it before completing your purchase. First time Purchase of a Power Hunt Appliance will need the Power Port.
