might need two for serious speed in the dark, but one's plenty fine to help me carve a path through traffic in the morning.

The light is bright enough to be used by itself i am really happy with it. Only issue that i am having is how much power it appears to be drawing.
Anyone else got one of these plugged into the AUX voltage port on their CA. When mine is plug into it is says its using 200W of power. Seems really high LOL.

Turns out the new Aux Voltage plug on the CA requires the wires to be hooked up in a particular way inside the controllers.
In my case the CA-DP plug had pin 2 and 3 connected at the plug then both connected to gnd in the controller.
To get it to work properly i needed to connect pin 3 to gnd and pin 2 to the mosfet side of the shunt. After doing this i also needed to re zero my CA units amps measurement.
End result is that no the CA says that the light is consuming 9W of power at 75V so all good

There is pretty comprehensive pictures of the internals of the CA's at ebikes.ca
Go and look and see if your version is there.
Not really clear what you are actually thinking of hooking up there TBH Power to light or something else?
