50W/12V=4 amps, each... 8A for the pair of fog lights themselves. I daresay that exceeds the output capacity of the small batteries.

I concur. I've been stewing over this issue for a few days now and that's what kept me from posting the vid on youtube. I might go with a deer feeder battery, as it will have more amps. I was thinking of going with another pair of lantern batteries, hook them up in series and then run them parallel, but that seems to add to much bulk to the bike. I like to keep it clean. With that being said, I just might go on and get a pair of bicycle headlights.
