Rather than hijack the thread titled “wing tip or landing light modifications” I am starting a new one regarding my question. In that thread it is stated the landing lights draw 200 amps. This was also confirmed by another person. 200 amps seems way too high of a current draw. Given the alternator or generator is typically anemic on the average GA airplane it seems hitting the electrical system with a 200 amp draw during landing would leave one with a dead or weak battery after landing given the time the 200 amp landing light is on. Since I am far removed from being an expert on aircraft electrical systems how can the charging system and battery maintain such a high draw in the 200 amp range without some penalty?
