HID electrical setup, battery drain question

I have a 2009 700FI with

4 x 7" Checker HID's
2 x HID headlights
No stereo.

All hooked up to the 2nd Odyssey battery with Battery Isolator

How long do you guys think I can run all 6 HID lights without going dark?

I have the same set up of lights , HID stocks and 4" checkers instead of 7", and I run off only the stock battery. It does fine as long as you are going. I would not sit and idle for too long. It is as close to maxing out the systems if not just a hair over. no problems on night rides, yet!?

Did you do the calculations? How many watts does the Rhino put out? 7" Checkers about 35 watts each? same for the HID headlights?

I want to say that it is 230watt stock but i dont remember where I found that spec. the HIDs are 35 each, the tail lighs are 5 each, whip light? then the ecu and ignition i would have to say the i'm over the production of wattage. At idle when it turn on my light bar, all 4 - 4", the voltage drops below 12 untill they fire all the way up. driving around it will get up into the mid to upper 13's. I just throw it on the charger before a trip to make sure its all ready to go. my buddy with a 660 has killed his battery on a night ride with the lighting set up as you + a LED whip, but the 660s dont put out as much wattage.
