The battery I got, a sealed - lead -acid (SLA) from Battery Mart (#SLA-12V1-3) has a cap in it that prevents it from exploding. So far the battery seems to be holding charge, I am running a 27 Watt xenon bulb, so I am assuming that I am putting out enough juice enough of the time to keep it charged.
The a55 (unless it's a sprint, which I think has a weaker light coil) should be able to maintain 25-30 Watts for a headlight. If you pull the 10W brake and 5W tail lights and replace them with LED's, you'd have even more juice. I just might do that. Prob only for brake, since you get no scatter with LED, and I'd like to still have my tail light seen from all angles.
Yeah, I like the cap and resistor idea. What size cap and resistor would I use?

Hey, how about putting a small cap (and resistor to drain the cap) between the bridge and the relay to give a constant level
