Great for testing and easy to modify – MR16 1*3W 650~700mA Constant Current Regulated LED Driver (8~40V Input) Reviews

Pros:
Cheap, has good quality MR16 pins, good silicone wires, small
Cons:
The input cap is useless. With the original cap I got 55 % efficacy with 2 blue leds and 12 V input (1 A output current). The inductor also gets quite hot. The dimming pin should maybe have soldering pad.
Other:
Changing the cap to either good quality electrolytic or 10 µF ceramic got me 83 % efficacy. Also, for over 700 mA output currents the inductor gets very hot so replacing it is a good idea too.
Bottomline:
Good for the price and fits straight into some DX MR16 housings.
