DIY HID Flashlight
An HID Flashlight I built sometime ago out of spare parts. It was made from a donor Chinese halogen searchlight which has a very short battery life so it was left in storage and forgotten.
The bulb is a HB4/9006 but the reflector is designed to accept H1 bulbs. Some metal bashing allowed me to fit the bulb and with the right focus. The ballast is placed where the cheap battery used to be.
An external battery is now used. I can also use a Li-Ion battery pack to make it lighter.
According to Google earth, that tank is about 600m or so from my house.
