    Upgrading non-LED Petzl lamp to 14 LED

    Hi All, Wondering if anyone out there has experience of upgrading an old Petzl Duo to a 14 LED. There's lots of info online for upgrading 5 LEDs but the one I'm looking at in particular in an older model with no LEDs, just 2 incandescent (halogen I think) bulbs. I'm pretty crap with electronics...
