I appreciate the advice, but how did you attach the headlamp to a helmet? I ordered one of these, and it's a pretty nice light, but it doesn't seem to have any helmet compatible hardware and doesn't fit with the GoPro mount that came with my helmet (Bell Super).
If it's a homebrew solution that you rigged up, would you mind posting a couple pics or describing the process? Thanks for the help!
Anyone find a creative way to mount a T6 to a helmet?

All of these use the new Cree LED diodes which are very bright and, in theory, can last 50,000 plus hours. It is a whole new world out there...
I like your setup. I too have removed the elastic straps from a headlamp and like it so far. I ordered a pair of protected Panasonic 18650 batteries, so the runtime should outlast a single cell Niteride Lumina or torch. Hey are you using the headlamp mount? I like the positioning ability, but I swapped it for a standard Magicshine o-ring mount for a quick (1 screw) solution. The red rear led is a nice bonus. 2 velcro rings on the back and it's done and feels solid. Will let you know on the runtime with the 3100 mAh batteries.
I say go with the cheap ebay ones from China. You can't expect these things to be as reliable or as good quality as the pucker ones but they are a tenth of the price so who cares!? Mine cost £18 each and lasts for 3 hours! I run two at a time with one being enough to allow me to carry on riding if the other fails.
