The only thing I would think about is how wet it can get before it will stop working. Just incase it rains

yeah rain can't be too good either

Have tested my new batteries, they are rated at 2200mah, 7.4V
Running my lights which are 2 x Seoul P4 LEDs with a 1Amp Buckpuk
I am getting a supprisingly 3 hours 20 minutes out of each battery (I have 3).

I was initially concerned that 7.4V would not be enough to power them but after charge I am gettin over 10V on the battery and after 3 hours use it was still giving a voltage of around 9V so I am pretty happy with that (I dont really understand why they give more voltage than they are rated).

heres my contribution....

20W halogen

10x 4Ah Nicads

Home built charger that I've almost finished tweaking...

Wondering if a 35° lamp might be better than the 10° I'm using?

15° would be good. 35 would be alittle to much.
