    Need some advice on P7 Module

    I have decided to build my own helmet light. I have been lurking here reading stuff for a while but I need some advice on this item at DX.

    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.14413

    It seems like a good deal. I know its a flood light but thats fine for me. I have a 2 cell 5000mah LiPo batt that is 8.4v fully charged. Will that power the light ok?

    I am a machinist so I can make a housing for the module out of aluminum with a switch and wire going to the batt in my camelbak.

    When getting into the DIY thing about 5 months ago I started by ordering some complete P7's lights and 2 of those modules from Deal Extreme.
    The reflector is really big and I was going for helmet mount. The beam isn't too bad if you so want to use it.
    The driver lasted longer in the module than the drivers in the flashlights.
    The hardest part of a build is sorting the body. The driver and led's are really easy. Sounds like you have the build part under control.
    This light/body is easy and all needed parts are listed.
    Learned how to do this by screwing up the bits from Dealextreme.
    Good Luck.
