A bit more tweaking tonight and I think I am a lot closer to a finished product. I have been riding with the Helmet light since late last winter, I have now added to the family a handle bar mounted light.

My Specs are

Helmet light:
2 x Seoul P4, 1 flood, 1 spot, both run at 1000ma each, buckpuc driver, 7.4V Li-ion batteriy, I get around 3.5 hours out of them. Cable with remote attaches on bag

Handle bar light
1 x Seoul P4 Flood run at 1000ma, buckpuc driver, 3 x AAA 2500mah batteries, not sure of lasting time.

:thumbsup: Vert you should run 6 cells instead of the 3AA IMO.

I just finished my test light and now waiting for the batteries to charge. Its taking so long.

I'll try to get pics of the light tomorrow :lol: Also hope to have a thremo couple to measure how hot its getting.

Are you really only using 3 AAA I thought that was a typo.

I would rather the light didn't die half way through a ride. Then having to worry about the extra few grams

yep 3 x AA, I reckon I should get 3 hours, just need to test, I know I can get at least 1 1/2 hours on 3 1700mah AA batteries

I'd say lucky to get 2. But I could be wrong.

Ahoy light geeks.

I'm looking for a second battery for my nightlightning iblasts. I have one of the nightlightning ones but need a second for 12hr races.

Where can I get an appropriate battery resonably cheapy and more importantly easily.

Nick, theres a guy on Tardme doing a decent looking LiPO.

14.8v 5maAh with protection and a built in charging circuit for a bit over the hundy mark.

I was thinking of getting one for my current project, just gotta wait for the coffers to refill a bit.

BLATANT DOUBLE POST!!

my led kit from cutter arrived this morning so my light project is now underway.

I have sourced some solid alu bar from the good folks at NALCO who were super helpful in allowing me to buy short pieces at very decent prices.

I stuffed up and asked for 63mm bar when 50 would have been overkill though ( my bad however)

time now to bust out the crayons and draw up a housing plan to follow.

initial estimates suggest I have enough material to make 4 housings, so if MK1 works out ok I'll probably spin out some more for any one interested. I won't be deviating too far from an already popular design though. I'm more interested in making it work than being clever at this stage.

I'll be trying to take pics as I go to show the evolution....

stay tuned for what could be very interesting or a complete fuckup

:)
