Back to seriousness: Has anyone made their own 10/20w Dual Halogen setup with Nimh batteries? Would it be cheaper just to purchase a system from niterider or light & motion? Thoughts?

Need something like 3-4 hour runtime with both on.

hey, we did indeed ride today. me and darkmother, and one guy from the toronto fixed group. not 100k, but some nasty hill work instead. a little rain but that's okay. and yes, somnambulant, i was there a little before 10, but we hung around until about 10:30 because no, we never do things on time.

With that kind of wattage/runtime you are gonna need a really good battery. For the time it would take and the potential hassle getting the right battery I would just buy complete. What do you need 30 watts total for anyway? I had 20 watts on the trail in the 24 hour and had more than enough to see in the pitch black. Some of the new systems use a smaller wattage but have a higher candlepower output. I would suggest the NiteRider Moab...12 and 13.5 watt lights....8 hours runtime on full burn....a bargain at $1100.

Yessah, I was planning to do some road rides on completely unlighted streets in the middle of the night. Something like 30kph-35kph must be able to see where i'm going. Maybe 10w/20w with a narrow beam instead? Hmm.

I was hellbent on getting 2x 10w or 2x 15w ... something like that. Has to be dual. http://www.batteryspace.com/index.as...S&Category=499

HID is teh $$.
