no no, it was your point, or at least it might not ahve been, but you didn't put it across in a way that made it seem not like your point, so indeed your point was actaully that as you typed and I read and made comment on

Heres mine made from a 20w bulb, a $2 switch from Dick Smiths and a baby food tin. All this is hooked up to a 12V 7AH brick.

Lift or v cans a re good as they can be bent to fit the top of your helmet better. And you can chop them using a pair of scissors.

Biggest failure point of my lights are the battery terminals - the contacts keep shaking loose. Any ideas how to stop this? I need to have them removable so I can charge the battery.

A couple of strips of insulation tape. I run it from 50mm down the side of the battery, up over the terminals and 50 mm down the other side, with the last 5 -10 mm folded back on itself to leave a tab for peeling the tape back and disconnect the terminals.

Seems to remain sticky enough to only need replacing every couple of months.

Silverone is a ten watt handlebar mounted for long climbing, road and the likes.

Black one is a twenty watt and mounted on helmet for descent (both lights running durest descent actually - 'case one shits it's self). The twenty is now redundant to tell the truth. Replaced with a thirty five watt.
