Total amount of Watts produced by center console cigarette lighter power adapter?

Hi,

I have an hour and 45 commute and am charging both personal and word devices in that commute so I was wondering what the total amount of watts the center console power adapter can produce?

I put in a dual power adapter with 110 Watts total output. I'll charge my personal iPad (29 watts), my work iPad (12 watts), my iPhone 12 mini (20 watts), and the portable GPS I have (12 watts?), so that's a total output of around 75 watts give or take. It seems like it's charging everything like it should, but just thought I'd check on here. Also, I have trouble finding an actual volts to watts calculator from searching on the internet, so that's why I'm asking.

Thanks

Watts=volts*amps*power factor

For resistive devices, you can assume a power factor of 1. for electronics it gets a little more complicated, but you're dealing with small loads so it's probably not necessary to worry about in this instance.

You're probably well below the ampacity limit of the power outlet circuit. Did you check the manual? There's probably an actual rating

I think the outlet is rated for 10 amps, which is 120 watts.

I also use a 120v charger in the center console with two USB outputs. Splits the load from the center stack connector and you can use a quick charge unit there. You have to remember to turn it on after starting.

Usually they are fused @ 15 Amps and with a 12V system, you take 15A and multiply it by 12V and you get 180 Watts which is your safety zone. If you happen to surpass that 180 watts, then your fuse will blow.

total AMPS from all combined cig lighters/ power ports in Runner

Any idea how may total amps I can draw from all the cigarette lighters/ power ports at the same time?
Got my Iphone, hand held ham radio, Engel 45 fridge, and also charging my "house" litium battery often at the same time.

Average running on the Engel is about 5 amps (max at start up for first 30 minutes is bout 30!), I can manage not running other items for an hour.

The battery DC to DC charger has max 8amp output so input is around that figure.

I'm guessing total running amps is about 20... wondering if this is all on one fuse under the hood???
Thanks!

All three outlets have a combined capacity of 120 watts. (On a 2022 ORP)
