    I'm looking for a low cost helmet mount light.

    Waded through some of the Cheap Lights 2020 post but there is too much scattered info.

    I'm looking for a helmet mount light and hoping to keep it under $150. If I can do it for less all the better. I have a Lumina Micro 850 that I will carry for backup so willing to take a bit of a gamble on some lower cost (read Chinese) options.

    Ideally it will have a spot beam, 1800+ real lumen output, 2 hour run time, go pro mount, be water resistant, reliable and not break the bank. I'm fine with a external battery pack.

    What are some good options?

    What are you using as a bar light? 1800 real lumens from a light that has an appropriate helmet spot beam and weight may not be possible for your budget. I'll see what I can come up with depending on you bar light info for compatibility.

    Gloworm Alpha Mole? Obviously not 1800 lumens but fits the rest of the spec...

    That's probably the best choice for someone wanting to carry the battery on their helmet. X2 lightheads are only $129 @ Action-LED-Lights + a $30 6800mAh ebay battery would only blow his budget by $10 and give him just under the requested 1800 lumens. Throw of the 2 lights is pretty similar but extra power and wider beam of the X2 might come in handy depending on what's used for a bar light.
