3. It must be helmet mounted rather than dangling round neck, in a tackle sack or pocket. I'm open to all suggestions as to how to mount it to the helmet though
Tough one. My suggestion based on this Criteria. Main Light. A Fenix HM65 R Really lightweight, very bright, 2 independent lights (bit of a faff to switch on, but built in back up”). https://www.fenixtorch.co.uk/Shop/Fenix-Torches/Head-Torches/13868-Fenix-HM65R.htmlBack up . A Fenix HM61R Fixed on the rear to help with balance. Fixed with a shock cord arrangement (One on the front in case you need to mount it there. )https://www.fenixtorch.co.uk/Shop/Fenix-Torches/Head-Torches/13917-Fenix-HM61R.htmlBoth lights work off 18650 batteries, so a couple of spare batteries in your pocket should see you right for any trip / incident. If one around the neck is not an option, Would a “wrist mounted”back up be an option ?Ian
Thanks Ian, two great ideas there you've suggested which I'd not thought of. An arm mounted backup is unlikely to annoy me. I'm actually thinking upper arm rather than wrist though. Might give this a go sometime. Sounds obvious now but I'd not thought of mounting a backup on the rear of a helmet either. Two lights which use the same mounting bracket / clips etc., one front, one back just swap over if necessary.
I feel that the 18650 batteries could become a nice standard for caving lights.
Fenix E12 - looked at those. Could well be the best contender. Just might need two to balance things up.
