    Help me with flashlight setup

    So I was thinking about the following setup for nightriding. Considered the true bike-lights, but if I can get something without wires, all the better..
    Does this setup have potential?

    Helmet:
    Solarforce L2p with XM-L U2 drop-in
    1x 18650 protected 2400-2600 (+1 spare)

    Bars:
    2x Solarforce L2p with XM-L U2 dropin
    Diffuser lenses for both to get more flood
    2x 18650 protected 2400-2600 (+2 spares)

    Solarforce charger.

    Area I will be riding is either tech trails or steep up/down, all in pitch dark woods...

    Thanks.

    Probably work OK, but you'll get more knowlegeable answers if you post this over in the lights and nightriding forum.

    or on BLF. There's more info on torches, dropins and 18650 batteries on there than you can shake a stick at

    One question - what output are the P60-style dropins you plan on using for the XM-L? A lot of them either limit the output at a certain lumen rating, or at lower amperage to maintain batterylife or heat.

    I haven't seen too many ~1000 lumen XM-L P60 dropins that would really allow you to stretch out the reason for having an XM-L in there in my opinion. A maxed out XP-G2 is ~400-500 lumens with a slightly lower Vf than XM-L in some cases.

    I thought about the Solarforce ones (solarforce - Welcome to Solarforce), which rate 500lm at high.
