Default If you are building a 12iS, don't skip the lights

You will need them on hot days to keep the voltage regulator from overheating. (Yep - the exact opposite of the 12)

See the attached explanation from the 12iS FTS about one of the big electrical differences from the 12.

After the battery is topped off - and that happens rather quickly - I regularly see 7 amps without the lights.
