Build Your Own Rechargeable Bike Helmet Light

Build Your Own Rechargeable Bike Helmet Light

Instructables user narced133 was sick of having his bike lights stolen, so he decided to build a pair of lights directly into his helmet. Instead of just strapping some on, he built them from scratch and made them rechargeable.

The build features a lot of tools, but it’s not particularly expensive to make yourself provided you have everything already. You’ll make your own circuit, so it’s not exactly for the faint of heart, but it doesn’t look that hard to do on your own. The end result is a light you build yourself that’s built into your helmet so nobody can steal them off you bike. Head over to Instructables for the full instructions to make it for yourself.

  • Looks interesting, but does it compromise the structure of the helmet at all?
    The Instructable just shows how to make the circuit, not how to install it into the helmet.
