This has been discussed here before and is fairly obvious, but until now the math didn't really work.

Well, now it does.

$6 for a 12V 900 lumen LED. And thanks to the EBR 1190RX, we know 2000 lumens is the legal DOT limit.

So for under $20 in LED's, you have a lot of what you need to cobble together a very bright LED headlight.

Yay!

I have other projects to finish first, otherwise I'd have some on the way already.

Wow! Not being familiar with lumens, so with 2 of these side by side looking forward, would there be 1800 lumens?

Yes. You will need to heat sink them somehow, either a big chunk of aluminum or maybe a fan.

Bill,
That would be an interesting project.
A standard H7 bulb puts out around 1500 lumen. It would require 2 of these to get a small gain in output.
However with the right reflector and such these would really be neat.

Thats what I was thinking, right before I started thinking about all my other half done projects. : )
