    Using a driver for each light,
    Need to up my Battery voltage to 11v approx because at the moment its drawing 1.6amps
    at 7.2v per light! if i up it to 11v its 1.15 so should get pretty good run times,plus i have 3 modes per light and will have the option to just unplug one.
    In theory i should have 1800 lum (before optics loss) and i am running a 480 lum headlight also.so should all light up the trails nicely.
    All i need now is to make a decent loom and source some inline switches (suggestions anyone?) to keep it all neat.

    Tommo.

    You need more amps to get those leds to give the full lumen power. whats the driver specs?
    you can search for electronic switches there's a lot to chose... maybe you can get it at a local store.

    They are being driven at 2.8amp,the drivers seem ok although 1 has just destroyed itself.
    They need heatsinking but its not easy finding a way of doing this.
