Headlight for Shimano Steps

Anyone have any experience connecting a headlight to a Shimano E6010 series Steps mid drive? I was hoping to get one that plugged into the computer as it has a light button, but after lots of searching, I am about to give up.

Busch and Muller Lyt E headlight ($38) and the Toplight View E tail light ($19) might plug into a SM-DUE01 light adapter for Shimano Steps battery, call Peter White to confirm https://www.peterwhitecycles.com/b&m_e-bike.php

Just an observation for what it's worth, Trek's Conduit model tapped the Shimano Steps system to power its OEM headlight. Although it was a low output light, it might be worth finding out how they did it.

Thanks for the suggestions. I am researching all of them!

Dig into the frame and see if there are lighting leads hidden inside. 6v is the usual for lighting circuits on e-bikes. Confirm that with a meter before ordering something.

https://www.peterwhitecycles.com/Schmidt-e-bike.php 6 ~ 75v means you use the battery poweting the motor.

My daily's light out is 48v (54v fully charged) so i used a downstep module to make it 12v. That allowed me to use a 12v cree motorbike projector lamp (which i placed inside a traditional lantern housing). I did the whole lot for about 20 and it's mad bright.
