Awesome! Now you need to get some of those rotary shaped headlights that we put on the yellow bike.

Although LEDs pull little power. . I would like to keep everything as simple as possible since I removed the generator. It wasn't possible for me to keep it due to no pulley on the rotary so I put a large battery in the cart to last the weekend, hopefully.

But yes, the few lights that are on it I want to be LEDs

Go solar on the roof or add one of those bicycle generators that rubs on a wheel to spin
it up for some cheap DC power and feed it to the battery to keep it charged.

Or even better, get one of those MICRO-START XP-3 units and use that as your battery
source. Very small and lithium and it should last long time.

Not a bad Idea, I have a solar charger that puts out ~14v on a sunny day.

I have this one, works very well but I'll stay with my larger battery.

Eh, I wanted to get it running right first. May do that still but will have to think about it.
