I have a Solarstorm x2. The battery that came with it is a 8.4 volt 6400mAh. I have a 7.4 volt 6200mAh battery. Will it work with the light head? Not enough juice? Sorry I know next to nothing about batteries or electricity. Please dont kill me too bad if this is a REALLY dumb question.:confused:

Yes it will work. The batteries are the same, it's just that one is reporting "nominal voltage" (7.4v) and the other is reporting full charge voltage (8.4v).

Might be, but also, 2p lifepo4 batteries charge only to 7.4v. Double-check so that you aren't don't accidentally charging a 2p lifepo4 pack with a 2p li-ion charger.

Will a 7.4v pack work with an 8.4v light? Yes, but you may not get full brightness. Depends upon how much of the voltage overhead is in use.
