    5amps per hour, so if youre only operating the tv expect 50hours use from a 100ah battery before it needs charging. obviously you will also use lights and pump etc so somewhat less. but you dont watch a tv night and day normally

    in practice we can go 6 or 7 days without recharging but using tv fr a few hours only each day

    I'm sure the big1 meant 20hrs (100/5=20) However I beleive that you will only get 50% of a batteries capacity so effectively you will only get 10hrs.

    youre absolutely right, not sure where the 5 got there from, probably because its directly above the 2 on the keypad. personally i recon it was a brain fart:Rofl1:

    60W sounds a little on the high side for a 17in telly.
    Just checked the power consumption of our 16in tv, and it's 13W

    does the tv have an inbuilt dvd player ?

    If so the 60watt rating will be when using the player which would be around 5amps.

    The tv itself would be nearer to 20watts max or just under 2amps
