    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Worked like a charm! It fit perfectly into the project I had in mind for it. I used it with sku.03475 and sku.10084 for some very nice results running off of two AA batteries. Cons:The price. I also didn't really like the 5-mode circuit. It fell off. I don't really see...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:gives enough mAh's for a step up converter quite cheap short mode memory- after about 3 seconds after turning off, it turns on again in first, HI mode, which is good in most cases Cons:really weird modes- the ones I recieved last time was HI->really LO->strobe->blink ev...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:- It's 16mm, not 17mm as most driver in DX - As multiple modes - Easy to install - Works with 1 or 2 AA batteries - I haven't noticed any flickering at the low settings (but I only used it for a few seconds, so maybe if you stay on low longer you'll notice the flickerin...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:This is a cheap, decent boost driver for 2 NIxx/alkaline applications. It's a small size so it can fit in most spaces. It has 5 useful modes, not 20 crazy modes that nobody uses. If you want single mode, then it's easy to cut out the mode controller on top and...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day Pros:works with 1AA and 2AA high and low modes, I don't need strobes Cons:not very efficient, gets warm in the high mode OtherThoughts:I wasn't able to measure the LED current, because my multimeter has a significant effect to the LED brightness, but I measured the LED voltage...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day Pros:-As far as I know this is the only 16mm board here that can run a led with just 1x AA battery. -After reading those other reviews I was a bit afraid about the brightness this would offer with just 1.2 volt input to Q3 Cree.. but after I had prepared for the worst, I was p...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Comes pre-assembled. After dealing with unassembled drivers this is a big plus. Decent output and efficiency. Can be used as a single-mode driver by removing the microcontroller board. 16mm diameter. Cons:The microcontroller is the weak link in the chain, it's only bene... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:5 Modes: High > Low > Slow Strobe > Fast Strobe > 8 sec Beacon Cons:Not enuff mA and/or V output for CREE Q5s OtherThoughts:I just got this board in my SAIK RC-A3 (SKU 5346) with a Q5 16mm board I got from eBay (before DX started selling them). At first I thou... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Works. Survived current being fed wrong way from incorrect battery polarity until it smoked. Cons:Flickery low mode Three strobe modes Large size Soldering/wires not overly robust OtherThoughts:Can be used in 2xAA and 1xAA projects. Bottomline:This appears to be... Read more
