    Hi just wondering what uses less amps . The main lighting which is LED but don't know the watt. or a lamp which is not LED but 10w. We are wilding for 4 days to trying to make our batteries last. Maybe someone with a Chausson can advise...or anyone else for that matter.

    LED' S every time, use so little power compared with any normal lamp bulb, and for 4 days, unless you have a big electric fire going for the nights up here, you will definately not have any problems !,

    PS. have you a solar panel fitted ?, even less cause for worry if you have,

    It depends how many LED lights you have. A typical LED bulb in a MH might be about 2w but a 10w main light is very low wattage if it is not LED. Are you sure it is only 10w?

    Thanks for replies. The lamps say max 10w but the LED light is onthe ceiling and about 4inch square. We have no solar panel.
