Busch & Müller Lumotec 3 W Replacement Bulb

These bulbs should have long lives. But it doesn't hurt to have a spare,
especially if your light goes out on a long dark stretch of highway.

The bulb is rated at 6 Volts and 3 Watts.

Comments:

I've had two completely different experiences. My wife's light, a lumotec N2, has worked fine so far (about 20 miles). Whereas mine (same light) blew out its first bulb in less than a mile. And, no more than a 100 yards later, I blew out another bulb. I'm not sure if it's the wiring or if the bulbs are this unreliable. I think it's a little bit of both. If you don't want to worry about [...] replacement light bulbs every once in a while, then go with an LED light, which last virtually forever. It's tough to beat the price of lights that use this halogen bulb though. So, if you're like me and your bulb blows out every 1/2 mile, the LED makes a whole lot of a sense. But, if you're like my wife with her light, you should be able to get a good amount of mileage out of it, say about 100 hours or so. My guess is that something is either wrong with the light or its setup. But, beware, halogens need to be replaced typically every 100 miles, whereas batteries tend to have to be replaced every 20-30. LEDs hardly ever have to be replaced. In the long run, LEDs are the most cost-efficient. However, it also depends on how long your "long run" is.
