Default Re: Blinker circuit

My understanding was that most relays (the automotive type) relied on heat to flip the switch, and because of that they were not conducive to efficient low voltage designs. My ultimate goal is to have an entire 6v system running of a small 6v SLA that is recharged by the white wire or a dynamo/solar. So a relay with a high current draw was nixed. Not that the relay would not work, but it was inefficient or (so I was led to believe). If I build my circuits right I should be able to power it on 4 AA batteries and not have to change them weekly if the SLA does not work out.
