    Night Rover retrofit.

    Has anyone done an LED setup in a Night-Rover body? I picked up one for cheap and was thinking it'd do well for a housing (maybe).

    Do you mean the Cygolite Night Rover with the plastic body? I am not a DIYer, but I know the body must be metal to dissipate heat.

    Cool-blue Rhythm thoughts?

    So where do you get led lights to try this?

    2 things to keep in mind with this.
    1. Plastic body will probably melt
    2. 6V battery (if yours is like mine) will require a boost regulator to run two LEDs in series. I don't know what your efficiency will be like, but with a 5Ah battery it may not be a big issue.

    If you want to BYO LED light you could do one of the DIY Dinotte ones like I did fairly inexpensively. I even designed mine to be able to use my Night Rover battery.
