I have been looking for some 1.5-4 volt lighting, similar to the ones we see on stepper generator kits.
i looked on the net and can only see 12 volt ones, or some very cheap ones from China which have only a short time use
Can anyone point me in the right direction
not sure what your after, what style? an easy way is just a bad of LED's but its not very stylish
Hi THanks for your reply.
It was just a couple of lamp post's(street lights) to but on a Welesco base.
I have seen some good 12 volt, but my generator would not produce a good light
Look around Christmas time in a garden center, I have had 4 lamppost 's purchased operates on 3 volts.
Thank you for your reply.
Yes, this is exactly the thing I'm looking for.
A very nice machine you have too !!
I was looking at some ebay listings a few days ago for sets of railway lampposts, they went for silly low money about £3 for 4 or 6 of them. If they were 12v it would be easy enough to replace the bulbs with some small LED's. Nice thing about bulbs is they dim as the generator slows down LED's are either on or off depending on the voltage but they can run down to 1.5 volts
Thank you for your reply's
I found these lights and they are not too pricey if you are only buying one or two, but I would have to be sure that I could find lower voltage bulb to fit before I bought one.
I would prefer a less expensive, low wattage kit if I can find one.
