I got everything hooked up and they work okay, but the lights are rather dim. I figure that this is because the wattage is to low for the lights to be bright enough. I got three options.

1) Get another pair of batteries, hook those together, then run them parallel to my first two. This will keep my system a 12v and it would boost the amps, and the watts.

2) Get a different battery altogether.

3) Just use some bicycle lights.

I'm going to go with option 1.
