So, Ive got one of them 6V optronics scope mount lights that Id like to use as a hand held light, while the factory batteries dont last as long as Id like them too, I belive that Red has led me to a solution in a larger battery. Now the question is, in order to preserve battery life and to extend the run time, Id like to find a rheostat for these optronics lights. I see that one of the lights that Red is selling has a rheo, but its a 12V light, and I havent been able to locate a 6V optronics rheo for these lights. Would the 12V rheo work on a 6V light/battery or is there a better option in purchasing or building a rheo? If building one is the only option, where the heck would I start? Lets work this out fellas, those optronics lights are pretty good for the price, the only downside being the run times on the battery, but purchasing a larger 6V battery from the link that Red posted in his for sale thread will solve that problem.
