Swytch kit on Brompton

I have a Brompton with a generator front hub and front and rear lights installed. If I buy a Swytch kit will I be able to power my existing lights with it?

I believe the Swytch kit replaces the front hub, Don't believe they offer a rear hub motor,

If you are running LED lights, you could probably rig up a converter to power them off the Swytch battery without using up very much power.

Yes, I know I would lose the generator and I believe they have an option for their own light. What I would like to know is if I could just run my lights off their set up.
