I have the Rolux RLC-130s battery. I'm pretty new with connecting a battery to the sled, but I wanted to find out how I can figure how much accessories I can attach to it without blowing it out?


It has a Dtap on the battery as well as when it's connected to the battery plate, it has a 12v, 7.2v, 5v DC connections and an extra Dtap. Would I be able to use all of them or how could I calculate a safe draw amount on the battery without blowing anything.


This post probably could go in the newbies section, but I figured this is specifically a battery question.

You need to find the wattage of each device along with the maximum constant drain rating of your battery. Those specs should be in the manuals for your respective devices.
