Multiple LED's off a Dyno-Hub?
I know there is a way to rig Halogen lights as primary and secondary, but can it be done for the LED lights too? Winter gets dark, and I'm thinking about running two LED lights, A lumotec oval:
and an IQ CYO:
Has anyone done this? My first thought is that I can simply splice the main leads of the hub and run them to each light in a parallel circuit. Problem is, I cannot remember my electricity courses, and I'm not sure if this will interfere with the voltage. My suspicion is that I will be fine, since its amps that get split, not voltage, so I'm thinking I'll be fine, but will have to ride at 6 mph for full bright vs the 3 mph I need now. Any suggestions for how to do this without messing up the lights/hub?
The goal is to get light downfield (the CYO) and near field (The oval). I already own the lights from prior single applications, but now I'm downsizing the bike fleet and want a commuter with excellent visibility.
Application is a Surly LHT 700c wheel with a shimano dyno-hub.
