First ride tonight with my new Solstice HID lamp. Apart a few blackouts caused by not forcing one of the connectors together well enough, it is very impressive. Haivng only used it for a shade under two hours, I can’t comment on the reliability, but the performance is very good, with a good dispertion of bright light.
The setup is a bit messy though, there is a fly lead on the lamp complete with a glowing blue power switch, then another short lead to reverse the polarity and connect to the different style connector on the Lumicycle battery,. It does mean cable all over the place, but it works.
I think I’m now going to sleep until Sunday afternoon.
