Well, I am now the owner of a box full of excellent lights and paperweights, uhhh, I mean batteries, thanks to my visit to carpediemracing's "fire giveaway". Thanks again Aki for all that wonderful stuff.
I am going to mount a set of the nightsun duals. I hooked them up to my battery charger last night. HOLY CRAP!!!!! those things are bright. There is a 10 watt and 35 watt flamethrower. This should make my early morning 35 mph runs down ellington ave a little less "exciting". They will require a fair bit of battery power, however.
My commute is approximately 2 hrs round trip. 90 percent of this will be on the 10 watt low beam. I could recharge at work, but, would prefer not to.
So what should I get? The light came with a Ni? bottlecage battery. I could get one of those. Or should I get a 5AH or so SLA? The SLA is cheaper and I already have a charger. The Nickel battery is lighter and I might need to buy a charger, but, I think one of the chargers that came with this stuff will work. Loosing one of my bottlecages is no big deal as I get by fine with one bottle of water per commute.
If someone out there has some battery equipment that they might be willing to barter for some halogen lights, maybe we could work something out.
