Looks like they would be excellent household / emergency flashlights. Bike headlight ? ... not so much, for reasons already stated.
I consider a 2 aa cell flashlight (the classic Fenix LD-20 comes to mind) as just about the limit as far as length is concerned (the light was very "finicky" on the handlebars, the tilt tended to wander up and down on rough pavement ,also would bump the light sometimes when standing up to MOVE/accelerate out from intersections or standing while climbing steep hills). A 3 c cell light overall length would extend pretty far both in front of and behind the handle bars from the lights natural balance point plus the increased weight of the larger C cell would be more of a problem on less than smooth pavement.
