    Hello!
    I just joined this awesome forum!
    What max wattage lamp will a 12 VAC 1.6 AMP transformer power?
    Thanks, Manilaboy :)

    Power (measured in Watts) is the product of voltage and current, so:

    12V times 1.6A = 19.2W

    Thanks Bob!

    My reference books have been in storage for 6 years and I am very rusty...
    Thanks again, Manilaboy
