Regarding a 12v source, is there a way to calculate how much energy is required to maintain a certain temperature through an element? Meaning if you want to maintain an element temperature of 35 F how much energy will it consume using 12v? How will the ambient temperature affect this equation? How much more energy will the element require if the ambient temperature is below 0?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
