Title: Helmet light
Post by: Xarka Shul on Aug 23, 2019, 10:10 AM
So I posted this in the helmet forum but i am going to post it here just because while its attached to my helmet it is still going to be an electronic. So I will be attempting to attach a small tac rail to the ear cap of my helmet and then attaching a small tac tight to that. Any thoughts if this design will cause any problems.

So I have a light on the side of my helmet as well. I used a piece of rail for mine, in case I wanted to swap it out for a GoPro or something at a big event. I was told that the rail was fine as long as it was not visible. My solution to this was to just wrap it in some "dirty rags/rope". Hope this helps.

Because I have yet to start on my kit, I'm considering 3D printing my earcaps with space for a light and wiring them into my helmet (depending on the application team's stance on that)

A good project. What did you want to use the lantern for? Maybe you need it in your work? For example, I really missed just a lamp, so that in the evening sitting in a chair to read a book. My wife goes to bed before me, and the bright light prevents her from sleeping. On New Year's Eve, my daughter gave me an attractive automatic amazon night light (https://www.amazon.com/Night-Light-Plug-Smart-Sensor/dp/B07NF4P12L). It adjusts the lighting to the time of day, and I just sit down next to the outlet, and its light is perfectly enough to comfortably read a book. And he does not disturb his wife's sleep. In general, it's a great gift, as it turned out. More valuable than the one more sweater given by my wife xD
