Does anyone have a 50" - 55" TV that uses 55 watts or less that is still in production and can be purchased.

I have an older 50" that pulls about 52 watts. Just concerned it will need replacing. The speakers took a dump, which I was able to find a pair to replace them with (just haven't done yet) been using headphones. I would just buy another one but isn't available anymore.

Messaged with someone that said they had a Samsung 55" that uses about 4 amps @ 12v, which would be about 48 watts before any inefficiencies. They couldn't tell me the model, so they could have been full of it.

Most of the newer TV's don't tell you anything about watts and those that do are always like 100 watts or more. I think it may be that almost everything is 4K now.

Don't need 4K, happy with 1080P.

Average 55"LCD tv uses about 57 watts. Google search. Most will have the wattage printed on the back of the TV.

Usually the labeled watt rating is a peak value. The average would be less. About the only way to know the typical wattage is to plug the TV into a meter like a Kill-A-Watt.

That may have been true, but every 55" that I can find info about is much higher.

That's why I'm asking if anyone has one that meets the specs I'm looking for.

Some specs online will tell you peak and average watts. But all the ones I was able to find it for was like 100 watts for the average.

I run my tv all the time. I'm looking for a new one to buy for when mine finally dies with the same power consumption, so my power usage won't jump.

Not at this time, but it will be in the future running 100% off a battery bank.
