Triple XP-E Versus Double Regina
The XP-E will definitely out-throw the XP-G any day through some Carclo 20mm optics.
Double'Gina reminds me of a P7 only cooler with a hot center that radiates outward. The XP-E is like a "rod" of light.
XP-E has a slightly warmer tint which I like. I can't really make up my mind which I like better. I have no way to test the throw beyond my 75' shots here b/c I don't have sold both of my doubles.
I think it's getting to the point of 6 to 1 & 1/2 dozen to the other. The double Regina and XP-E triple are both KILLER helmet lights. The double would be more efficient...but the triple is physically smaller.
Well...the runtime on that little battery is pretty impressive. 2000mAh mfgr rated on the cells.
Ran 82 minutes on high.
I built a 3750mAh battery pack that is slightly narrower, almost 2x longer and a tad thinner. I'm expecting it to run 2.5hrs'ish.
The bigger battery pack still fits on the helmet really really well due to how narrow it is. It's also dadgum light weight. Makes the old Bastid battery look and feel like a piggy.
The "bigger" battery pack is interesting...it's 3750mAh. It's approx the same width and thickness as the little one. (slightly smaller) But it's almost 2x longer.
Runtime was 2hrs 28min:
