I like the look of these these Chinese lights, any one know if you can get a helmet mount for them. Could the battery pack be worn in a camelbak?

edit: Doh, just found them http://www.candb-seen.co.uk/accessories/cables-o-rings-and-helmet.html

Not read the whole thread.
Have you spoken to Lumicycle? I've found them to be very helpful and repairs are either free or very reasonable. On two occasions (over about 8+ years), I've sent battery-packs back and had them repaired or up-grated.
IMO, worth a try as Lumi are a Brit company and deal direct.

I picked up one of these a couple of weeks back and I'm very happy with the quality.

I'm using the same light, can't fault it for the price.

I did think about getting a similar(less expensive) one from China but seems a lot of hassle to save a few ££££££.

Just to follow this one up I actually got my original lumis back in action.
-Stripped the HID down, resoldered a broken wire and seems to be working again.
-Ditched the lumi fast charger and made a lumi lead for my hobby charger. Cycled both big Nimh batteries a couple of time and both seem to have a reasonable capacity.
-Picked up a cheap MR11 LED bulb from China > http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0909005981 which I've stuck in one of the halogen cans with a glow ring for general use.

Given I rarely ride 'properly' at night sure this will suffice for the moment, have used them quite a bit given the short evenings and all seems well again. Might be nice to get a Lumi li-on battery at some point but no rush. Did order one of the cheap £15 LED setups from China, still waiting on this though.
