they dont project very far , so i would say no - they are pretty bright, i run them in the day at 30% , 100% and high beam (thats what the skene dimmer does) but imho all that candle power is too bright for daytime even , unless the road was desertedGbjbany can they be used for driving lights if your headlights gave out, just to get home?
No I have not mounted them yet. Others have said that the 15 degree spot Cree 10 Watts lights are really too bright for night time in traffic. So putting a dimmer on will allow me to tone it down some. Putting a relay in with the highbeam being the trigger, it will go full on high till you go back to lowbeam.<<<SNIP>>>Have you mounted and tried your lights yet? I have hooked mine up to a 12 volt battery and they seemed bright but it was daytime so I really don't know what they are like outside at night.
Great diagram Dave and thanks. Can you give a little more info on what type of dimmer you use? Relays are easy but what dimmer would you suggest to use with the diagram you posted?
Thanks in advance.
I have two 10 watt Cree LED's and will be wiring them in using a remote dimmer and a relay to bypass the dimmer for high beam.
I have these lights and dimmer:
OHH, 5 feet of 16 gauge will handle 19 amps, not to over fuse I will put a 15 amp fuse in. I got to far ahead of myself and forgot to do the math. But 15 amps will work up to 180 Watts @ 12 volts DC, so even a 10 amp fuse would work. I'll see what I have in my electrical service box.<<<SNIP>>> and about 5 feet of 16 gauge heavy jacketed wire (16/3) I will wire it up. I will place an inline 20 Amp fuse at the battery's end of the positive lead. <<<SNIP>>>
