I own both a CygoLight Night Rover dual beam and a Nightrider Trail Rat. The Nightrider's single beam is appears about 2x brighter than the combined beams of the cheaper CygoLight even though the bulb wattage of the 2-bulbs appears closely equivalent. Has anyone tried refitting the Cygolight with a bulb for the Nightrider?

I called Performance Tech. Support and found out that the system in the NiteRider Trail Rat actually draws a higher voltage somehow to boost the brightness of the bulb over its marked output rating.
Since the two systems aren't compatible my best choice appears to be purchasing a second Trail Rat or put up with the Night Rover's lower intensity.
