Default Re: What wattage headlight to use?

i have a 18v cordless tool battery with 1hr charger $45
2 12v car clearance lights 1 clear and 1 red hooked up in serial to = 24v
a inline fuse and a toggle switch $4
battery will keep lights bright for many many hours/days
extra batteries are only $20 and are sold at walmart or cordless tool places

im guessing the lights are 10-12watts? for clear front
and 5-10watts? for the red rear light

i have a clear light with dual bulbs in front$3-5 and a red dome light in rear$5-6.
you can buy the lights at any car place.
my lights can be seen atleast 1,000ft+ or more down the road
