I just measured the current that our propane
leak detector draws and found that it is 1/3A! That's 8AH for a day, 56AH for a week. A significant fraction of our 105AH Trojan battery
. Maybe that's the reason the previous owners had disconnected it.
I want to be protected, so I am wondering if there aren't more economical ones (in terms of AH's) available? I did find one on the web that ties in to the "house" battery
and consumes about 1/20A, or 1.2AH per day, or 8.4AH per week. But the following question seems very reasonable and has me puzzled: My wife asked, "Since there are 9V battery
operated carbon monoxide detectors, aren't there 9V battery operated propane
detectors?" So I am relaying her question to you.
Do you know of any?
