Yes, use a hot-wire ammeter or something similar that integrates the
current over time. Or (much better) build the Dave Sharpe opto-
wattmeter, which will accurately measure the TRUE wattage that the
coil is using. Dave has posted info on his wattmeter on the list and
has offered to send schematics I believe.
