Bike Lights


Recommended Posts

I came across a smalling light in a camping shop that pushes out 300 lumens for R300 odd. It could easily be modified to fit a bike handle bar.


The problem is that this thing runs off a 12V DC power supply (a car battery).


I have a couple of 1.2V sub-c Nicad batteries at home which could be joined together to make a 12v battery pack.


Would I be able to run this light off the above battery pack?

Yes you would. But without more info, the light could maybe only run for 5min before the batteries go flat.


A 300 lumen light for R300 wouldn't be very power efficient, especially if it runs from a car baterry.
