    Where do you mount your battery?

    If you use a handlebar light with a large lithium-ion battery, where do you mount the battery? On the seatpost and wrap the wire around the top tube or someplace else?

    I've stuck my Jetlites A51 battery in a down tube bottle cage and strapped it down with some velcro so it doesn't rattle around. Excess cord is wrapped around the top tube. This is on my cross bike but it works so well I would do the same on the MTB.

    Magic Shine 1400 battery pack fits perfectly in the nook behind my seatpost. The battery is currently charging, but when it goes back in the pouch, it snugs up very tightly in that space.

    I usually put it in a water bottle and just put it in a bottle holder.

    Top of the down tub right up by the head tube. Just enough room for me to get a water bottle in behind it (I'm on a 61 roadbike, 59 CX bike). Haven't tried it on the mountain bike yet.

    Down tube, either towards the top or in a fake water bottle (one of those Bontrager water bottle tool kit cases with a zipper).

    My seat post now, but I did run it on my top tube.

    I put it on the top of my stem or the front of my top tube.
