Default Diode heads please chime in!!!!

When I decided to use an extra battery for my radio instead of a converter I had no idea South Carolina would pass a law allowing carts to be driven after dark. The setup I plan on using is a ML35-12 12V Deep Cycle battery along with the blue sea fuse panel. I have an LED light setup on my 2010 Precedent. It consists of LED head and tail lights. Now I don't plan on extended cruising after dark but there will be times when we'll make one or two mile trips home from the restaurant. I don't know how much current the light kit uses so I don't know if the chosen battery is up to the task. Many of the components are already purchased so this is the setup I'll continue with. Any info on current draw from these lights would help. Thanks in advance!

My advice is measure the current draw with a DVM.

Just a guess, if you just have a regular radio and LED lights, you are likely pulling less than 10 amps. The battery should last quite some time with that load.

Your total,draw will be less than 10 Amps. Use an LED light set up,in front and rear and it will be even less.
