    Quoted from huo:

    Does anyone see any issues with this?

    There's going to be a hell of an in-rush when you turn them all on simultaneously, probably 12 amps each...though they run at a lower amperage, something like 6-8 amps if I remember correctly.

    I did some searching...memory is not as good as it used to be.

    Not sure what in-rush is, but probably something like 2 times peak.

    I read somewhere that on a 20 amp power strip, when a guy had 2 machines turned on simultaneously, it popped the breaker on it. But those things suck anyway wrt tolerances.

    These were measured with a Fluke 87:

    Wall voltage: 118Vac

    Attract mode full bright: 1.9~2.0A
    Attract mode level 4: 1.8A (level 7 vs level 4 was almost the same
    Play mode: 2.0A average over one game, 3.3A peak

    peak amps were for a VERY short duration (flippers flipping, pop
    bumpers bumping, etc..)

    Who Dunnit:
    Attract mode full bright: 2.4~2.5A
    Attract mode level 4: 2.2A
    Play mode: 2.65A average over one game, 4.4A peak

    Attract mode full bright: 1.88~1.93A
    Attract mode level 4: 1.75~1.78A
    Play mode: 2.27A average over one game, 5.0A peak

    Demolition Man:
    Attract mode full bright: 2.2A
    Attract mode level 4: 2.0A
    Play mode: 2.3A average over one game, 4.4A peak

    No Fear:
    Attract mode full bright: 2.0A
    Attract mode level 4: 1.92A
    Play mode: 2.3A average over one game, 5.1A peak

    F-14 Tomcat:
    Attract mode full bright: 2.03~2.48A
    Play mode: 2.45A (3.5A w/beacons) average over one game, 6.52A peak

    Quoted from vid1900:

    LEDs of course can lower the draw 60%.

    Yes, these measurements were taken pre-LED's. Not even sure if the bulbs were 44 or 47...
