From our experience we have come to learn that replacement batteries for bike lights can be very expensive, which has lead to many people looking into building their own lighting systems. We have a lot of experience in this area and are happy to help with advice into the best solution that we can offer.
There are many different types of lighting systems available for use on bikes however they can be split down into two main categories; lights to make you able to be seen, and lights to able you to see. The best solution we can offer is NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) systems; they offer the best performance characteristics at the most suitable budget. The important thing to remember is the higher the voltage and power rating of the bulb, the larger, heavier and more expensive the battery pack will be. We can build packs to fit into a bike drinks bottle, to strap onto the frame of the bike, or fit into a carry bag, - it all depends on the design needs of the individual.
Another matter is the termination of the battery. There are thousands of different connectors out there and it is very difficult to match the right ones without either seeing pictures or actually physically having the right connector. The most efficient way for us to supply the battery is with plain flying leads and for the customer to fit the required connector to these leads. If however you would like a connector fitted then the more information you can get to us the better.
Charging also has a huge bearing on the performance and life of a battery pack so it is important to get the right one for this type of application. Cell Pack Solutions provide a range of battery pack chargers manufactured by Ansmann, which automatically detect when the battery pack is fully charged
