Does adding extra electrical accessories, such as Cree LED bar light, LED Reflector etc, to my car drains the battery life and shortens it's life span?

Thank you,

It all depends on LED Wattage
Like most Halogen Bulbs are of 55W, while LED if bought from Osram or Philips comes with 25W Bulbs in there branded Osram LEDriving HL Premium one in 4200 K Color Temperature.

Although higher wattage bulbs of 6000 Kelvin Color Temp are available but they turn out to be too bright and not recommended, but even if these bulbs put in extreme case scenario - then come in 40 Watt or 50 Watt - still its lesser than stock bulbs wattage

Similar for LED Bar Light just uses 3Watt to 4 Watt maximum in 1 bulb and say if it has 10 Bulbs - mere 40 Watt consumption would be there. Thats too less to impact car battery life in any way.

So answer is - No its not going to impact as long as Wattage is checked and if
> Front LED Bulbs are under 55 Watt
> LED Bar Light is like 30 Watt or 40 Watt

No impact on battery life going to happen
Hope should help !!
