Will Superwinch LT2000 ATV Winch Run Off of a 12 Volt 7.2 Amp Hour Battery

Question:

Can I run LT2000 from a 12V 7.2Ah General purpose lead acid battery? Also, I have an auxiliary cigarette lighter in the rear of my vehicle, could I plug into that instead of wiring directly to the car battery?

Helpful Expert Reply:

Provided that the battery can handle the 100 amp power draw at 12 volts then you can use it to power the Superwinch LT2000 # 1120210. The wiring and fuses used for a 12 volt outlet such as a cigarette lighter are not rated high enough for the power requirements of this winch. I have linked a help article on wiring an electric winch for you.
