        Q: Will portable 12 volt heater power light drain my battery when off?
A: No battery , a totally charged `` D '' cell NiMH has max twelve a/h at 1.25v , which is equivalent to fifteen watts for 1 hour . So you would require 100 `` d '' consumer batteries to run a 1500 watts heater for 1 hour .   A characteristic 12v automobile battery is rated at seventy amp hours , so it could dispel 840 watt for an hour ( actually that fast of discharge accomplishes a lower rating ) , so it would take two automobile batteries to run the same 1500 watts heater for 1 hour .   And with any of those simplify computations you would have energy consumption by the inverter unless you managed to find DC heaters .
