rack or tail (voltage ?)

don't know which gives off more light ? I guess it doesn't matter as I will be using them together. there are 2 separate sets of lights in the rack so I may use one set as a tail light with lower voltage and the other as a brake light. not sure why the photos show the bright red led's as more of a white color-------anyway , what im wanting to know is there something I can add in the wiring to reduce the voltage 2 or 3 volts (or whatever amount is necessary)so I can use the rack as a tail light and a brake light ?

Use something like the the SMiDSY LED Brake Light flasher (HERE)

Quote:
The BLMED-1FG when wired up in Mode "3", will hold the Red LED's at a 30% brightness and then when triggered by the brake light switch, turn them up to 100% .


Wired in this sort of way / Cct



As I did for the V35 bags so you will get this effect you want on your rack

No Video

Quote:
The SMiDSY contol box operates the lights as follows
Upon applying the brakes, the brake LEDs are on at full power for 0.5 seconds. The LED's will then flash rapidly 15 times at 10hz and then remain on at full power until brakes are released.

If the brakes are re-applied within 8 seconds, the LED's will go on at full power until brakes are released again. This is to prevent distracting the vehicle behind in stop/go traffic.
