Build/buy a regulator
I asked this in another thread about batteries and I thought I'd give it it's own thread to maybe get a few more responses.
I am considering using my 18V Nicad drill batteries to power my 12V nightsun dual headlights. I would primarily run the 10 watt halogen, using the 35 for fast downhills or battling high beam running cagers.
I believe 18V is a bit much of an over volt. 14 or thereabouts should do nicely. Having adjustability would be even better and a seperate strobe output would be the cat's ass!!!!!
Does such a thing exist or can someone tell me how to cobble one together. I am an electronics tech and pretty good with a soldering iron, so fabrication is not a problem.
