    Need a bit of guidance for battery options

    Hello Gents,
    I have a tripple MC-E light coming from Deesta/Troutie. I need to get a battery pack that would last At least 2:30hrs on high. Could you guys please help me out on what type of battery configuration I should go with..

    You are going to want some thing like a 14.8 volt 5200mah pack for a good runtime
    maybe bigger but certainly not smaller.
    mind you dont usually run on full the whole time .

    So, you guys think this would work OK?
    Also, is there any need for a main shutoff switch?

    Nope that one has a 12 volt regulater so is no good is there a similar one with out the 12 volt regulator .

    You dont need to worry about a switch it will have one and all functions are done in the maxflex software and when not using it you will unplug the battery .as it is not a good thing to store the light connected to the battery in case of accidental switch on which could lead to overheating or battery discharge.

    Troutie, what type of battery connector are you using for the light?

    That battery should be good

    Connector wise I am not sure yet we are looking at some new ones and I should have a sample soon

    or I can just leave a tail on the light for you to put a connector of choice on .

    I am no pro at this so excuse me if I give you the wrong info. I did however read on the maxflex tech docs that you shouldn't exceed 3amps. use it, don't use it..

    So i was about to buy the battery i listed above and realized it's stupid heavy. at over a pound it is way too much. So that leads me to these bad boys:

    http://www.batteryjunction.com/tener...-6600-pcb.html

    What runtimes would you guys guesstimate i would get with these using the 3 MC-e's on full?
