Re: Extra rear LED light - large diameter?

Edit: It's probably not as simple as dropping an LED into a bulb holder. There might be voltage things you need to do. ???

Cateye TL-AU100, Philips Saferide, Spanninga Pixeo

In terms of the OP's requirements Spanninga Elips (remake of Philips Saferide) is a good match.

Re: That's bananas!"

Fortunately I do not have £100,000 so I need not be troubled by this question.

Even more fortunately I already have a banana.

Re: No fuse in battery charger for 8.4v bike light battery?

Of course just a 2-way plug thing would do it, can't believe I didn't think of it. :oops: Those all have a 13A fuse though, don't these things explode way before that like under 5A? You're really going to kick yourself when you realise that if it's fitted with a 13A fuse you could easily change it ...
