Greg's Homemade Head Lights

Greg Thomas showed a homebrewed light system. It is powered by ten D Nicad cells with 4500 mAh capacity that are held in a bundle by two layers of plastic shrink wrap. He used 1 ½ x 0.065 aluminum tubes to hold the internal parts from the old lights. The bulbs are MR11 halogen bulbs from Harrington Lights (available on the web), and he uses a 10 Watt bulb and a 35 Watt (!?) bulb. The system runs roughly one hour on 35 W or four hours on 10 W.
