Xhp 70 warning strobe

Hello All. recently purchased this product. An anti collision strobe featuring 4 x XHP70 in series (specs state 8000lm 80w and 6500k). …Pretty underwhelmed with its performance though. Its nicely packaged for my application, chunk of billet aluminium for the body and whole thing potted in epoxy but I really want more Jam out of it. power wise I have a 70w coil which charges a 7ah lead acid battery so I should have lots of power to spare considering this thing has such a low duty cycle (flash,flash,pause.) think aircraft strobe flash pattern. I have opened up the electronics box attached, not sure what to comment about it, the size of a buck/boost converter going to some capacitors. I am not worried about lifespan (well, 100hr would be nice) or cost or heat- everything below fire is acceptable My question is: what can I do on the input side of things to really supercharge this light? crank the voltage going to it? some big capacitors? Thanks!

The specs seem off cause if I recall a single XHP70 should put out 4k lumens easy and if this light has 4 of them and the specs say its 8k lumens that seems very strange….

Post some pictures to give us some thing to work with. Brightness mods without is tricky. Example lets say it’s a Cree XHP70 Bin N2, very average LED. You’ll have a LED VF of 12.25 volts and 1.2 amps to run it at 2000 lumens. You 7Ah lead acid battery with a little voltage sag from 4 of them might not be able to push any harder.
