Re: [DML] How to figure battery life



Not enough information.  You need to know how much current the 
LEDs draw.  Plus the door buzzer and interior lights.  A good estimate
is to take the amp/hour rating of the battery and divide it by the current
draw.  There are other factors, but this will get you in the ballpark.

As a simple example, if your battery is rated at 2 amphours and you 
are drawing half an amp, you can expect 4 hours of power.
