DIY DYNAMO LIGHT (One stop shopping)
happy labor day everyone. winters comming but I do love fall here in the northeast.
is their some place to purchase all /most components needed???
My Inoled light died last night , its being replaced under warranty but I have to say I wasnt too fond of it ! its nice and wide but I dont like the dark spot from the focused cutoff and brighter would be better.
$200.00 for a supernova or edelux is and option but often One can make a equal or many times a better system for less $$.
Ive always been a diy type and would like to put together a LEd that would work with my schmidt hub. I have an existing B& M tailight thats in working order.
Ive been looking at the Leds avail and the offering is good cree Q5 but I havnt been able to find an online vendor that has all or at least most of the components. Im not worried about housings .
seems like the cree q5 is a popular choice, but optic from another vendor??? diodes and such are easy to find localy , I have much stuff at work.
Who is using what these days as the led TECH CHANGES FAST.
a single LED very bright (big heat sink ok) any suggestions??
