    SST-90 or XP-G

    Has anyone built a light using sst-90? I tried searching but nothing came up.

    Also, between sst-90 and XP-G, which would you recommend?

    I need it to last me about 3 hours. handlebar mount, I have all variety of batteries I can use.

    SST-90 is less efficient and has fewer optics choices than the XP series. It has a huge die which typically requires an equally huge reflector or optic to harness the light into a useful beam. Pretty significant drawbacks IMO.

    I want to mount this on a handlebar. I was thinking either 3x xp-g or 1 sst-90.

    I would go for xpg even on full it would draw half the power og the ssc90 and the light would sertainly not be bad

    Go with the XP-G or wait for the XM-L.

    XM-L looks very good, but I'm sure it'll be $$$ when it first comes out.
