Has anybody tried these new LED lights that come in a MR-16 body? I am thinking of trading out my lights to lower the power consumption and hopefully the size of the sld battery. I just got a 15 degree angle 3x1watt LED MR-16 light from ebay today. I have measured my housing and i think they may fit. Right now I have 2x 20 watt halogen bulbs in they are floods (as it is hard to find spots in the local market). They do not throw light as far as i would like. They do light it up though but for any speed over 20mph the halogens do not throw light far enough up the road.
If you have tried these in your home brew what do you think of them?
Do they throw enough light?
Do you think a 3 ah will give me a run time of about 6 hours if i am running two of these? If not what size battery would? I can not efford the fancy light batteries has to be SLD.
