    My understanding is that once the pmags reach a self-powering state, they stop drawing from ship power automatically.

    A call to the Emagair could explain better: https://emagair.com/contact-us/

    I pay a "use tax" every year in AL for my airplane. I bought it in AK and am an AK resident that just happens to live in AL because of my job.

    Not a fan.
