    New question here. More 'what to build' thoughts...

    I didn't get around to building the lights I have made the housings for yet as Cutter didn't finish the 7-up XHP35 parallel board so I'm rethinking what to do.
    I've got 3 housings I'm looking to build up and, being a lumen whore, I'm looking to go BIG!
    This is my thinking (please feel free to correct any mistakes or make suggestions for better options):

    Light 1 (bars - flood) has very good heatsinking and lots of surface area with room for the larger drivers from Taskled.

    XHP50 (12v) triple in parallel
    15v 5.2aH battery
    b3Flex or H6Flex @ 1.5a
    Ledil Cute optic

    Light 2 (helmet - throw) also has lots of surface area and heatsinking with room for the larger Taskled drivers but 3 x 20mm ports for the LED's

    XPL-Hi x 3
    15v 2.6aH battery
    b3Flex or H6Flex @ 3a
    Regina reflectors

    Light 3 (bars or helmet) is an old Altair housing I made. Heatsinking was fine for 3 MC-E's back in the day and has 3 x 20mm ports for the LED's. Restricted to b3Flex due to housing shape.

    XHP35 x 3 parallel
    15v 2.6aH battery
    b3Flex @ 1a
    Ledil LXP optics (different ones to suit different uses)

    Light 4 (helmet -throw...not made yet...)

    XHP70 6v x 1
    7.5v 2.6aH battery (probably a 5.2aH if needed)
    LFlex @ 3.5a
    Ledil IRIS optic

    All thoughts welcomed as my understandings of how it all works are not the best

    You'll need to supply these parallel emitter boards with a lot more amps if you are after lumens.

    3a for the XHP35 and 4.5a for the XHP50?
