Just some pictures, i think these answer most possible questions. Weight was no arguement, the light has to be solid as a brick for heavy wood rampage.
The Microfire itself was completely left untouched, it can be rebuild to original state within 2 minutes.
I use a lipoly battery pack with 11,1 V and 10 Ah capacity in the saddle bag, which results in about 200 minutes possible use time.
The green led in the plug turns from green to yellow at 50% capacity and from yellow to red at under 10% capacity.
I integrated a small electronic board against deep discharge in the battery as well.
Some pics at the beginning:
Yeah, it works!
A solid mount is necessary!
Some beamshots (F4, 2 sec, ISO 200), the tree on the right is 18 meters away, the tree with the reflecting sign ist about 55 meters away.
I'm very happy with it, its very solid and takes even higher jumps without trouble. That is very important for me since i want to use it on my freeride bike as well.
For uphill touring and for illuminating the first 5-10 meters in front of me, I use two Fenix L2D Q5 but these are not really necessary when running the Microfire.
