    Question Accessory power limits

    Hey y'all - I've got the TRX4 Bronco, and am looking to add the Traxxas LED kit to it. However, the accessories power plug is already being used for an ESS- DUAL+ speaker. Is there a splitter I can use to power both at the same time, or an adapter of sorts that allows me to plug something directly into the battery?
    I figure I could just run one or the other, but I'd honestly like to have both going at once if possible.

    Thank you!

    Side note on the battery situation, I'm using a 5000mAh 11.1V 3-cell 25C. I purchased these for my batteries: https://traxxas.com/products/parts/2990
    If that helps.

    What plug are you wanting to take power off of, the main battery connector, or the red JST?

    Depending on your soldering skills, you can get a splitter for either and power both. the ESS really does not consume that much, and the LED kit doesn't take that much power either. If you add a winch into the mix, I would recommend coming directly off the battery.

    Just off the red JST. I might actually return the speaker though, it's kinda making my steering act a little weird. Happen to know if one already exists?

    I googled it instead of being lazy and discovered they do exist.
    Excellent. Thread can be closed if mods can close them.
