It's rather different for LiIon batteries - you don't want to discharge too low or charge them up too high. You can squeak a little more runtime out if you charge to a higher voltage, but your battery life goes down a bunch. What I run on my bar is a standard 18650 pack (6 cells) with high capacity cells - they you can charge it conservatively and run it on a pretty high mode while not worrying about runtime when you're in the middle of nowhere ... alone ... at night .. in the rain. Another benefit is you can take a spare 4-cell pack as a backup. Those weigh almost nothing and can be strapped anywhere.
