    2 Headlights for a 6v battery on a power wheels

    I have a power wheels and I want to put 2 lights in front. Meaning not actual headlights. I don't need actually headlights I just want to run 2 bulbs in a space in front for the headlights, but my question it what 2 can I buy to hook up to a 6v battery without burning light out or using up battery in a short amount of time. thanks

    You don't even need the 6V battery -

    Just use LED lights with small dry cell batteries and they will last quite a long time. Probably months.

    Bike shops sell exactly what you want as an LED light kit for two, three, and four wheeled bikes. We just installed a set on a classic Velomobile.

    You would need to source 6V LED's

    Which is probably easy. Oh; here's some -

    They apparently make LED bulbs on all kinds of standard bases now. I converted all the lights on my boat to LED by just replacing the bulbs.

    Im gonna take the battery out of my old lawn mower and Id like to get some of those high powered LED modules off ebay and make a nice flashlight.

    Make a batterybox/case.... something to hold the modules..... and a switch.... maybe a rotary switch to make it variable brightness....
