Default 6 volt halogen sealed beams

Just a quick question. Do 6 volt halogen sealed beams draw more power than regular sealed beams.

It depends---if you replace a 35 watt with 55 watt it will take more
even if a new light takes more it doesn't mean the charging system can't carry it, and even if there is a slight discharge it would depend on how much you drive in daylight to replace the discharge

I think Kurt's answer is yes.
