Converting 6V Cygolite to 12V?
(beginner geeky light enthusiast, so bear with me...
I have the Rover NiCad Xtra 6 Volt dual headlight, which has been good to me...until recently, when the battery wouldn't hold a full charge.
I figure, maybe now's a good time to convert to a 12 volt system. I could buy a powerful 12V NiMH battery pack from batteryspace.com and swap the existing 6V 6W/10W mr11 bulbs with 10W/20W 12V bulbs.
Does this make sense? Will I fry the plasic light housing or wires by doing this? Or is it better just to buy a new 6V battery and call it a day?
