    12v Battery Options

    So I have a project I'm planning on my '74 Schwinn. It involves removing the halogen front & rear lights and replacing them with LED units.

    The units are Dual Intensity and here are the specs:
    • OUTPUT INTENSITY: 1000lm (raw; max.) 600lm (raw; dimmed intensity)
    • DUAL-INTENSITY LED: 1x CREE XML-2
    • DUAL INTENSITY CURRENT: 160mA (dim) 580mA (bright)
    • VOLTAGE RANGE: 9-30V DC
    • MATERIAL: CNC 6061 AL
    • FINISH: Anodized Black
    • WATERPROOF: Yes
    Goals are to put 2 in the front light housing and maybe one more under the seat with a red lens. I'm not yet sure how I'd like to wire them up but I'll figure something out. Rechargeable is obviously a priority and I don't need these lights to last a crazy long amount. I'd just like to have a couple hours if the sun starts to go down early. (Note- This bike will not be on the main roads. Mainly paved parks & around the neighborhood)

    I'd love to be able to gut the original generator that came on the bike and fit a battery pack but the more I research the less that it seems likely there is enough space inside.. If that's the case I'm fine mounting a battery pack somewhere else on the bike.

    Ideally I could purchase something from Amazon as I have a gift card balance. Correct me if I'm wrong here but something like these would work:


    Any help you guys can provide would be appreciated!

    Seems like it should work with the Amazon battery pack if the voltage spec of the light (9-30) is accurate.
