Hey Moped Army,
I have a really simple question from a newb. So I have a Vespa Ciao with a 6 volt system. I am my brake light just burnt out and I wanted to replace it. Yes I know I could just replace the bulb with a simple 2 buck bulb from treats (6 volt - 15/5 watt ), but I wanted to replace it with a brighter LED bulb as this is my taillight and safety is a concern of mine.
This is the current bulb:
However, when I look online, I cant find the exact bulb in LED form, for example I find amazon is close:
The voltage is the correct volt, but I am not sure about the wattage as it is not listed. I don’t know much about electricity. Simply put, I know that volts are the current, and Watts reference how much movement that the system can output. For example a car battery may be a 12 volts but the wattage on it is crazy high in order to turn over the motor.
So, i guess simply, when looking for a light, do I have to concern myself about the wattage as well as the voltage of the light, or should I just focus on the voltage?
Any ideas you guys have, I would appreciate it.
