Wanted xhp70.2 light or DIY kit

Hi guys, new here. I have a dirt bike that I’m trying to get the brightest led lights on without breaking the bank, and it cant be more than 30watts total power consumption- so I cant just add more LEDs to get more light, need to get the most lumens per watt, and from what I understand the xhp70.2 is the best option. What is the best bang for buck xhp70.2 light that I can get? It can be any kind of light, flashlight, headlight, led pod, DIY kit, anything. I can make a custom mount for it so that’s not an issue. Prefer something that has flood and throw.

Thanks in advance!

I have one of these, no idea if it's a genuine XHP70.2 and batteries they supply are terrible but for the price i'm impressed with the output, and it's a zoom head also which I really like in a flashlight, if you like i'll take a photo of the output next to a couple of Sofirns and Convoys when I get home form work later.

Sofirn SP70, Convoy M3, Convoy L6 are popular XHP70 flashlights. Not sure if they are too big for your bike?

If a flashlight uses multiple leds it is also more efficient at lower levels.

Does it appear to have the output of a true xhp70.2? Because I have ordered multiple other “xhp70.2” flashlights from aliexpress, but when I compared them to a fenix pd36r it was like half the output and the fenix is only 1600 lumens and the xhp70.2 is supposed to be close to 4000 lumens. I would just use a pd36r in a heartbeat, it’s perfect for my application, but 100$ is alot to throw at an experimental project…

Thanks I’ll look into those. As long as it doesn’t pull more than 30watts then it’s not to big, I just need the head with electrical components and I’ll make a mount for it.

What’s the voltage available from the dirt bike?
Or: how do you intend to power the light?

No idea but you said "without breaking the bank" and for $12 it's pretty damn good and a zoomie, so flood and throw adjustable as you require, just don't buy their batteries Wink

The SP70 will most likely pull more than 30W and is the biggest of these three.

The voltage available is 13.4 to be exact but I plan on using a voltage regulator to match the voltage of whatever flashlight I will end up using.

Something like that would be perfect! Has anyone tried it yet and can confirm that it a true xhp70.2 with the 3-4K lumen output? Can kaidomain be trusted with their claims? I dont want it to be another one of those xhp70.2 I’ve bought on aliexpress that are less output than a fenix pd36r (my only source for comparison as I know it’s TRUE output @1600lumens.)

Why not just use a headlight for a motorcycle.

That light there can handle 8.4 Volts maximum.
You’ll still need a driver or step down to handle the 13.4 Volts.

That’s not necessary when you use a driver that can handle 13.4 Volts.

But i don’t have one in mind, but maybe others do.

Also, you can run the XHP70.2 in 12 Volts configuration in stead of 6 Volts configuration.

I think it may even survive direct drive just fine, as long as it has a good thermal path / heat sink.

So that means no driver or regulator, just an ON / OFF switch, straight from the battery.
