Good question. I just bought a widder electric vest and used it for the first time yesterday. I was also worried that the vest would draw more current than the alternator could provide. I can only tell you that I had it on for half an hour with no problems. Don't know if it would cause problems if I had it on longer. The vest draws about 33W. That's less than 3A.

BTW, the vest works great. Only problem is that my hands, legs, and head are still cold :cry:

The S/E puts out 200 watts at 5000 rpm according to the manual. The K puts out 150 at the same engine speed.
