bike lights

The lights that came with my bike were way too dim, so i had to upgrade them. I didn’t want to pay a fortune so i went with 12V led motorcycle lights that are mass produced, watertight and cheap.

I had to print custom holders to mount the backlights to the bike without having to drill the steel frame.

Everything is powered by a standard 5V powerbank with a 12V step-up converter. With a 10000mAh battery you get about 1,5 hours of continous lighting, which is totally fine for my daily commute.
