New spotlight for Scarlett

While in Arizona, I foolishly caused damage to the small spotlight I used on the right side of the sidecar; to draw attention to that side of the rig while moving.

I broke the spotlight that used an H3 Bulb and I recently replaced it with an 18 watt LED spotlight from Amazon.


The cost was under $20 so very low risk proposition and the light fit just right where the other spotlight had been mounted before.





The spotlight's construction is an all metal housing and some very bright LED bulbs.  So far I like it a lot, but it does cause some issues with photographs when the angle is just right; it can be quite blinding.

It's got a blueish/greenish tint, the light, but so far so good.

It never hurts to illuminate a little more. Looks like you found a good deal on Amazon too.

You’re right Trobairitz, lights help give a clue to the dense herds if clueless cagers around here.

Of clueless, not if clueless....damn autocorrect

The 18 Watts seems high for an led. It must be pretty bright.

Charlie6 said...

At the right angle it’s blinding, RichardM

Love the LEDs. So bright with little power draw. What about putting a yellow filter over it?

Charlie6 said...

Thanks BeemerGirl, a filter eh? that's a thought, make the lights match in color....

eBay has good prices on LED lights as you found.
Never noticed your basket on the sidestep before. What is it for?

Charlie6 said...

It helps secure either a gas or water can Jan....

Looks like you got a good Amazon deal!
My only thoughts are do you think they look a little too white/bright to go with Utirian Classic looks?
Regards.
