Great driver for high power LEDs – MR16 3*1W 300~350mA Constant Current Regulated LED Driver (12~16V Input) Reviews

Pros:
This is a really nice driver for high-power LEDs. I use it to drive Luxeon Endor Stars. It delivers 300mA to 350mA to the Endor Stars which are wired with three high-power LEDs in series. I run it off of my 12V car battery. Unlike resistors or voltage regulators it wastes very little power. It is very much like the Buck Puck drivers that cost $15. It's very simple to use it will run on DC (any polarity) or AC. The chip used in this drive is a PT4115.
Cons:
The only con is that this driver has two big pins for input voltage. They probably fit some kind of light, but not mine.
Other:
Bottomline:
This driver will work with any set of LEDs which all have the same 300mA current requirement. Just put them in series andd hook em up. BUY IT
