    Can I use these together?

    Hi all
    I've got a mate who's just starting riding and he's keen to get out for a night ride so was looking to build him a cheap light with some bits I've got left over.
    I've got:
    2 x MC-E (individually addressable)
    1 x XP-G
    maxflex

    Is there any way of combining the 3 LED's with the maxflex so I can use up my last ALtair housing?
    Cheers
    Steve

    This is what comes to mind. Wire the each MCE in a 2S2P arrangement and then add the XPG in series in the middle. This is the equivalent of 5 LEDs in series. Run the Maxflex at 1200mA off a 4S battery. Each MCE will run at 600mA and the XPG will run at 1200mA.

    Sounds perfect VB. Don't suppose you could doodle a quick wiring diagram as I'm rubbish ?
