That is genuinely the best idea for bicycle lights I have seen here so far! But add indicators too and you have one great piece of kit!
Thanks for the heads up on using a 9V. When I first saw your suggestion, my mind couldn't go to those small 9V, like for a smoke detector, but I'm ready to try that; and you're right, they have rechargeables now. Thank you again.
Hey, which type of switch you use? can tell me the name and type of that switch ?
Deeppu, it's a 'push on' type, bought at Radio Shack. Here's a close-up of an extra switch I have of the same type. Double click on the image and you'll be able to see the numbers on the body of the switch. Let me know if this helps.
