Not sure if your trying to save power, or create more light.

the cheep 35W hid's really work great. I bought

If your trying to save power, realize the stator produces 100% output all the time, what you don't use is shunted to ground through the voltage regulator.
I am trying to cut as much power as possible. 2.9amps is great but if I can get that to 2.5 or even 2, that is a free amp to use elsewhere. LED headlight and a dimmer is a perfect way to cut my 4.8amp headlight to as low as computer possible and use that elsewhere.

Just some quick info I have compiled

My heated jacket and gloves on high draw 9.2 Amps
Stock headlight at the same time draw 4.8 amps
bringing my voltage down to 12.9v

so I am trying to bring everything under 13-14amps so I am not discharging my battery.


this is what I am wanting .6amps!!


@ 1.2amps
