Overview

This page is a complete step by step instructional guide to making your own bike light at a very affodable price. I will be describe with words and show you with pictures how to assemble a powerful bike light system that can be mounted to a bicycle helmet.

I will not be describing the electrical/battery side of the light system as I feel that leaves me open to far too many questions and liability. I will give some guidance but please look elsewhere for instructions for the battery system.

Hey Dean, Awsome idea, I just finished building one of your light systems but I am finding it hard to find the right battery, I've come across mostly 7.2V and 9.6V. The 9.6's I've seen have used the small AAA sized cells and have very low amperage so they wouldn't work as well as the bigger cells but I cant find a 12V without having to make my own. Any tips? what are you using?

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!
I have a lamp fixtures site/blog. It pretty much covers lamp fixtures related stuff.
Come and check it out if you get time :-)

Hey this blog is not about lighting

I have been doing hours of research on "Lighting" and it brought me to your blog on Overview. Anyways, Dean I was reading your blog and I think it is really cool. It’s really a pleasure reading your posts! Keep up the great work.

Keep blogging away :-)

This is a great idea and much cheaper than buying the equivalent type of light from a bike store. I'm definitely going to have a go at this project.
In reply to racin' jason...you may well want to try the type of battery used as backup in a home alarm system. They're a bit bulky but that will give you hours of light and are 12V.

Thanks for the helpful guide on building a set of bike lights at home.

I wonder if you'd be able to tackle making something like these bike lights, which have integrated indicators?

If so, please do post how you get on. It's a wacky idea, and a bit star trek, so something more simple and home made would be awesome.

I'm the sort of guy who enjoys to seek different things. Currently I am making my personal pv panels. I am doing it all by myself without the aid of my men. I am using the net as the only path to acheive this. I came across a really brilliant website which explains how to contruct solar panels and so on. The web site explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

I'm not sure bout how precise the data given there iz. If some experts over here who have xp with these works can have a look and give your feedback in the page it will be grand and I would highly value it, because I really love [URL=http://solar-panel-construction.com/diy-solar-panel-construction-is-it-really-possible]solar panel construction[/URL].

Tnx for reading this. You people rock.

After the publication of my tutorial, I received several messages asking for a
pdf to download the tutorial. Just click here and you will go directly to
the page where you can download it. If you have
any problem to download it, I would appreciate you let me know.

This tutorial is for personal use,you can create the case for
you or to sell, if you do one of my projects I only ask you to do a link to my blog for the tutorial.
The FBI complaint says about two years ago, Kabir, a naturalized U.
S. citizen born in Afghanistan, was able to interest Deleon and Santana in "violent Islamic doctrine", especially online, where the three of them shared
comments and links to Islamist websites. A favorite site featured
material posted by the late Anwar Al-Awlaki, an American and former spokesman for Al-Qaida in the Arabian
Peninsula, killed in a U. S. drone strike. http://is.

gd/1rP7xe Black Harley-Davidson iPhone Cases Harley-Davidson makes several black leather cell phone cases.
Harley also has cases for the Apple iPhone. Harley-Davidson's black leather iPhone cases protect the iPhone with its leather as the front and back of the case and it has elastic sides. The elasticity ends of the of the Harley-Davidson Phone Case allows it to accommodate different sized iPhones because it can contour around the cell phone. Harley Davidson iPhone cases are also used as cases for other personal items that someone might carry. An Amazon customer review calls the Harley-Davidson Phone Case great. The Harley iPhone dimensions are Size: 4.0" x 2.50" x .8". If that Harley case is too small then don't stop looking at the Harley cell covers because
one will fit. Since there is an assortment of Harley Davidson black cell phone cases,
covers, and skins, cell phone customers will be happy to see that they can find a case that fits their wants
and needs. Some people prefer the subtle Harley Davidson logo on the iPhone case while others want the traditional orange and black Harley logo visible.

Harley Davidson sells vertical iPhone cases and horizontal cases.
The Harley Davidson horizontal case fits more than just the Apple iPhone.

This case also fits the Blackberry curve, HTC
Incredible, and Motorola Droid cell phones. Since many of them are made out of black
leather they will last a long time, probably right up until there is another technological change and the iPhone or other smartphone shapes
change. Checking VoicemailThe importance of allowing customers and clients to leave messages for
independent departments or individuals simply cannot be stressed
enough. Since it is usually not cost-effective to provide each employee a secondary telephone that they can use for business purposes, a virtual phone system is the perfect answer.

Employees can use their personal telephones to call an assigned telephone number in order
to listen to their messages, keeping their own telephone numbers
private. If they need to call a customer back, they can choose an
option within the voicemail system that will allow them to call from the virtual telephone system's assigned telephone number.

What you published was actually very logical. But, what about this?

suppose you added a little content? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean "Overview" is kinda vanilla. You should look at Yahoo's front page and see
how they write news headlines to get people to
click. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers
interested about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.
