Exposure strada

I'm looking at lighting again. Does anyone know how long you can get with an Exposure Strada MK9 (SB) with a large 8.7 support cell?

My thought is that I could use this as my main light for rides and then use my Ravemen 1200 as a backup/usb power pack for my bolt. This would only work if I could get round a 600 on one though.

I don't know how long it will last but I know it will be long enough, most likely without the battery extender. A summer 600 with a sleep stop only needs a few hours of light.
Life obviously depends on what level of brightness you select. However, as a comparison, josh ibbet did the tcr in 2015 with a strada using the lowest brightness level and the story is that he didn't need to recharge it.

Do these lamps still suffer from strobe effects? Group riding has a whole different dimension of contra rotating cranks and wheels. Also the road surface takes on a strange texture.

I've just picked up the Exposure strada SB 1500. I hope it doesn't disappoint.

OK, strada turned up today with a 31.8/35mm bracket. I'm using standard 25.4mm road bars but the clamping area is very small (https://www.velovitality.co.uk/products/compass-maes-parallel-25-4-o-handlebars) so I'll need to clamp it onto the 23.8mm section.

Does anyone know if exposures 25.4/31.8 bracket will work on the 23.8mm section?
