    I recently sent a set of Marwi Kamikazi dual beam bike lights back to Marwi cause I think the battery was defective. Since they didn't have anymore 6V 6amp Hr batteries in stock and rather than hold my lights for a long length of time, they sent me a 6v 8Amp Hr light that is the battery that the better model (the Pro Elite) comes with.

    Should I expect a difference in runtime or power because of this or not?

    Thanks,

    Jay

    You should get 25-33% more runtime out of 8AH batteries as compared to 6. Assuming your charger has the capacity to charge the batteries fully.

    Cool beans, the best of both worlds. I really wanted the Pro Elite because of the longer run times, not because it was 35W versus the 32W of the Kamikazi, so now I have the better battery and more than enough light to use it.

    I love biking at night, I recently had the opportunity to ride some of the trails I know at night and it's a whole new world out there. Spooky too!!! Makes me feel like Dave Atell (sp?) from Insomniac on Comedy Central..
