[DMCForum] Re: Relays & current draw



 
Ryan,
 
You may get many different answers for this but it all depends on the  
condition and state of charge of you battery.
 
160mA should last for days if not a few months on a new fully charged  
battery but it's probably still not a good thing to do.  The Door Lock  Module 
upgrade is done to lower the 12 mA draw so I don't think you want that  160mA going 
all the time.
 
One thing you can do is use a "more efficient" relay.
 
Another would be to design a simple electronic version using a  transistor.
 
How much current do you need to handle?
