Doing lots of night riding this year so to go along with my single Cree XML Spot which I still find is great I've ordered one of these for the bars for a flood type light.

A mate is using the 7 LED version but I reckon that's overkill as a twin Solarstorm x2 setup is good enough, this is just an easier package with only the single light and 5 LED's.

Going to have a look at getting some Samsung Cells and a waterproof case and making up my own custom packs too.

Will be interesting to see how well the custom pack does against the cheapo ones supplied with the lights.

Carl.

My lights have all been 4.2V ones (the original 'Rose ebay special) light was and I've noticed most have moved to 5V for USB. which is good ads LiPo pack and 20A/h pack (at nominal 3.7V cell voltage) are compact and cheap and robust.
