that claimed to be 600lumens for $30 ea, I figured why not. Lets hope they last. They only draw .2 ah, I finally got them wired in and working. Whatcha you think? Got $60 invested
You'll be really glad you bought these if you capsize!
Nice idea! I'll have to do that myself. Currently my spreader lights are tractor headlights I believe and turning the two of them on draws 12amps!!!
