Fridays led project?

Postby mudcow007 » Fri Oct 05, 2012 09:46 am

just been given a pack of "daytime running" leds to play with


just wondering if i should rig something up for my bike?

either down the front of my fork blades would look cool

only issue is, they are 12v but low amps


the leds are in groups of 3 but look like a block of light on the pic

ideas? or is it tacky?

Can you rig them to your iPod in some way?

I'd put them facing forward on the forks on the basis that forward-facing lights are white (which is way reversing lights are white, innit), rear-facing red, and side running lights on cars are amber. Have always quite fancied amber side-facing lights in my bar-ends for that reason.
Sometimes parts break. Sometimes you crash. Sometimes it’s your fault.

3x18650s in series should do the trick? Or is that too simplistic...

Mount them to your legs.
