I've got a pair of 20 watt lights and I really like the increase in my ability to see when it's dark and raining- and the increase in my visibility from the front. But Evan's right, they really suck juice and when the bike's not at cruising speed it really pulls the system voltage down. My on/off switch is the kickstand switch and I wired it up so that the lights go off when the fan comes on, but if anybody else wants to add similar lights, add a switch so you can turn them off when stuck in traffic. And it wouldn't hurt to hook up the battery charger when you get home.
