Help: Adapting new power source for old Vistalite head light (Lightstick)
New years brings clean up around the bench and i found these 4-5 old Vistalite headshells that I inherited that are collecting dust. They were powered by a lightstick, but the run time was ugh and eventually it stopped charging or giving power or wire was bad or all three.
I have lamps that are rated 5,10, and 15 watts.
I used a couple clippies and attached it to a 4xAA back up bundle for my Dinotte and the lamps worked fine. I had hacked into the cable to bare wire to make it work.
Question: Can anyone suggest an easy power mod so I could mount one of these as a back up flood light source on the commuter? A Batteries Plus ready to go product? The original cable had one of those female plugs, but I can solder and mod.
