  • Boost Driver

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    This is one of the few boost drivers on sale. I prefer boost drivers because generally they allow the use of higher capacity 18650 batteries in place of 16340 batteries. This is a CC driver so should, in theory, work with less than 5 LEDs in series - provided there is sufficient voltage differential. I'm planning to use this driver to replace the buck driver in my MX Power 3xCREE flashlight SKU 5971 - provided there is room in the pill for it. This should allow the use of 2x18650s in place of the 4x16340s.

    Cons:

    Others have reported that the driver gets quite hot.

    OtherThoughts:

    There is a lot of information about this driver on candlepowerforums. There are also details for modifications to allow the driver to be used in different applications.

    Bottomline:

    Very cheap high power boost driver.
