    1769 Lumens from 15 watts, each headlight should have an array of 3 with massive heatsinks.
    90W total power consumption, with a full battery the 85kW can run them for 40 days :)

    and for the high beams, 1x of these on each side behind another projector optic running at 100W for when you really need to *see* something far away
