Default Re: What kind of lights are you using?

After trying them all I'm convinced running off the white wire, lead acid batteries, or tire generators are impractical long term solutions. A 50-100 LED Dealextreme headlight powered by NiMh AAs gives more light and 6-7 hours between recharge. NiZn cells provide significantly brighter output but shorter LED life. For the rear I use standard 3-4 LED red bike safety light.
