Troubleshooting light system build
I'm hoping to get some ideas as to why my light system project isn't working. There must be something I overlooked.
This is the light - VisionX Solstice Solo wide-beam. I have this mounted as an exterior area light on my campervan and it works fine. As you can see it is rated from 9-48V input. I thought I would give it dual purpose by rigging it up as a bike light too:
2" SOLSTICE SOLO SINGLE 10-WATT LED POD 35ø WIDE BEAM
I bought the battery pack recommended to me by Batteryspace.com to be able to ride for a couple hours. Voltage reads 17.0v at full charge:
Li-ion 18650 Battery: 14.8V 2.6Ah (38.5Wh, Flat) with PCB, UN Approved
So I wired everything up. When I plug in the light, it flashes as soon as the contacts touch but nothing else. The light works fine when plugged into my 12v source on the van and I tested it with an 8-cell AA battery pack (showing 10.8v); both work fine.
There is something that I'm missing and I'm hoping someone may be able to point it out. There is something about this battery pack that the light doesn't like and I can't figure it out.
Thank you for any help!
