That's right, they've got a dual-emitter unit (but there's no AA-powered variant of that one). And at one point they produced a three-emitter taillight version of the 600L headlight but eventually dropped it.rodar y rodar said:Holy cow! I love those DiNotte tail lights! They`ve upped the ante to a 400 model tail light now, haven`t they?
I don't know of one off the top of my head. That would be a pretty specialized product. The companies who have the technology for that sort of thing all seem to be based in Germany, where powerful taillights are against the law in the first place. Unless you have a BMW, of course, in which case a 55W halogen rear fog light is evidently OK It is not logical, Captain.rodar y rodar said:MechBgon, do you any chance know about any "DiNottiesque" tail light that could be run by the full power of a dyno during daylight hours, then switched off or reduced at night to divert the majority of the dyno`s juice to the headlight? I won`t even attempt to ask that on the homebrew forum because that stuff is way over my head- I`m talking about a commercial light.
I'm a big fan of reflective tape too. This is some very good stuff with top-notch reflectivity, if anyone needs a source: https://www.night-gear.com/reflective-v82-conspicuity-tape-by-reflexite-539 The silver tape is the most strongly reflective, but they have other colors. All of them are prismatic tape, as opposed to less-reflective glass-bead "encapsulated lens" tape. A couple bikes I used it on:As a commuter that drives past cyclists riding in the dark and fog, let me make one suggestion that I think is crucial for your survival: reflective tape. Many times, the headlights of mine or other vehicles will wash-out the lights on bikes, rendering the rider "invisible in the light". However, that same bike with some reflective tape on it is still highly visible.
One of the best setups I've ever seen, and which I've subsequently put on bikes, is the use of reflective tape on the spoke bed of wheels, but in a pattern that's progressively denser/tighter for half the wheel. The effect is a spinning, pulsing ring of reflection visible from far behind the bike, but invisible to the rider (if it's only on the rear wheel).
I also like the subtleness of the V82, which doesn't have the triangle pattern of the V92, and it's nice not to have a $25 minimum order to avoid a minimum-order fee. If anyone's wondering, if you order multiple quantities of one color, they'll send it in one continuous piece. At least that's how mine came.rodar y rodar said:Nice photwork, mBg. Also a good deal on the Reflexite at that Night-gear site. I was going to post up again for some V92 that I bought from Identitape a few months ago, but the new site you linked to looks like a better deal.
