Currently it draws 2.5A at full power, but will be bumped to 3.6A (full nominal power) once i get some resistors from ebay.
The lipo pack is 5.0 Ah so 2 hours at full power would currently drain the battery completely. However lipos take damage if drained completely, so to be safe 1.5 hours at full power or 3 hours at half power.
I replaced the driver it came with with one that would deliver a bit more current. (2800mA vs about 2400mA from the stuck one.) It's not a huge difference, but it had better modes and a PWM frequency high enough to make the flicker undetectable by me when the light isn't running on max brightness.
Cheesecan: Thanks for the link to the leds, those look really nice, too bad they are about twice the $ per lumen compared to what i pay. You are correct, LEDs will make pretty much all other kinds of light sources obsolete in the near future.
BaNa: Thanks! :) If you liked that preliminary compilation you found on my blog, then check out the music vid in the other thread.
