    Anyone one know about how many watts a Vibratory Case Tumbler uses?

    Mine is a cabela's re-branded version of the Berry's. I can't seem to find a label on it that says how many watts it uses.

    Just wondering if I should be more careful with how long I leave it running.
    Thanks.

    You wouldn't notice a difference in the average homes electric bill if you left it on for 24 hours a month.

    Turn off the computer, TV, & cell phone charger if you want to save some real bucks on electricity!

    Mine runs overnight many times a month, never can see the difference in the bill. Now AC in the summer is entirely different.

    Don't notice a real difference.

    I'd guess less than 40 watts. The things are nothing more than a small motor with a weight hung off one side off the shaft to make it wobble.

    I run two big Dillons that dwarf the Berrys. I can't see a notable difference in my electric bill and I do about 10,000 rounds/month.

    I doubt that the Berry's would eat up a dollar bill of juice.

    It's less than a 100W light bulb. I have a Franklin Arsenal Vibratory Tumbler, and it's rated at 110VAC @ .83A. That's 91W actual watts, and that is the maximum rating.

    That's not a hell of a lot, unless you plan on running it every day for hours on end.
