I’ve searched everywhere I can think of but can’t find a reliable answer.
Is there a relatively simple way to tap into the battery power on any (or all) of the P4 series to power lighting?

Also, is the battery voltage different for all the P4’s?

Any help will be appreciated.

Sure voltage is same but different mha p4 is 5350 p4p 5870mha,I use in normal p4 for longer flights,as for stealing batt power,be careful,means less flight time,I just use p4 headlight sets on front and back,they just clip in nice with good balance,depending on what you want to run you can get these things in pic which have been fitted by dji or specialist so not draining main power source directly

Do those headlights allow you to film at night?
How far do they light ahead?
Um here couple pics,says 500mtrs but can see lot further away,never actually tried to film at night but with just the back be OK, Um have played with lots of lights big and small but have stuck with these plus me v2 strobon,just works well for me

other good thing these can aim up or down any angle,normally have the 2 rear facing down,good landing lights,in the past I had visit from police about night flight,because I had them facing down someone thought I was spying going past there house at over 100ft in the air at 38kph so yes bright and not affect flights,if mayby rough calculation might lose 1 mayby 2min fly time but not notice because I run pro batterys........just thought I would add that to much light can blind yourself on landing,done it myself nearly crash,had to turn drone away from me so I could see,that's downside of to much light
