I would just plug it in and keep the wiring out of the way, and have it mounted to the inside of my center armrest console. Ideas? Better suggestions? Better prices?

Converting Watts to Amps

The conversion of Watts to Amps is governed by the equation Amps = Watts/Volts

For example 12 watts/12 volts = 1 amp

Converting Amps to Watts

The conversion of Amps to Watts is governed by the equation Watts = Amps x Volts

For example 1 amp * 110 volts = 110 watts

Converting Watts to Volts

The conversion of Watts to Volts is governed by the equation Volts = Watts/Amps

For example 100 watts/10 amps = 10 volts

Converting Volts to Watts

The conversion of Volts to Watts is governed by the equation Watts = Amps x Volts

For example 1.5 amps * 12 volts = 18 watts

Converting Volts to Amps at fixed wattage

The conversion of Volts to Amps is governed by the equations Amps = Watts/Volts

For example 120 watts/110 volts = 1.09 amps

Converting Amps to Volts at fixed wattage

The conversion of Amps to Volts is governed by the equation Volts = Watts/Amps

For Example, 48 watts / 12 Amps = 4 Volts

PIE. Easy to remember: P=IE where

P is Power in Watts

I is Curent in Amperes,

E is Electromotive Force in Volts.

Manipulate any two knowns and solve for the unknown value.

Ohm's Law is E=IR where R is total resistance in Ohms. Sometimes you must use this equation to calcuate current or voltage first before plugging that value into the Power equation. Total resistance is calcuated differently for series circuits and parallel circuits...but I digress. And don't even get me started on AC circuits with Impedance, Fourier analysis, etc.
