    Simple heatsink addition for 'Achesalot' lights

    I've made 2 sets of 'Achesalot' LED's now using Cree XR-Es (a set for me and a set for a mate) and now I'm building up a 'MkII' using Seoul P4's. I got to thinking about improving heat transfer and added a bit of a variation to the 'Achesalot' housing:



    The finished lights:

    The Jaycar ones definitely look worth the money. I reckon to mount my light on the front rack, though, so I expect I'll put the heatsinks on the sides and bottom of the case -- the possibility of opening up my face on the prongs, if the bike stops before I do, doesn't appeal.

    It was more the idea of mounting it onto the extended backing / mounting plate I was pointing out...
