    Replacement battery to mount on helmet

    I bought a Yingding (this) that I have mounted on my helmet. I've been using the stock 4-cell battery attached to my helmet (cord's not long enough to reach my pack). That's not an especially delightful set-up for obvious reasons, so I'm finally getting around to looking at a better battery set-up, but I'm no light guru.

    I see 3 options:
    - an extension cord,
    - a new 4-cell battery with a longer cord, or
    - a new 2-cell battery mounted to the helmet

    Assuming I go the 2-cell-battery-on-the-helmet route, is this a reasonable choice?

    All depends on the run time you need. That magicshine pack is low on capacity so yinding at best will run around an hour on full charge. Good pack, just low capacity.

    If you need more run time, 3400mah 2 cell will give you 1.5+hrs run time. More than that your looking at an extension cable. You wont find a pack with cord long enough to go to jersey pocket.
