Glad you asked! I was worried about that as well... So I measured the current draw with the detector on and off and noticed less than 1 milliAmp drop and absolutely no voltage drop! So based on these measurements, there hopefully shouldn't be a problem... I will certainly update you guys, if I notice a problem!
