Cheap, has good quality MR16 pins, good silicone wires, small
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.
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.
Good for the price and fits straight into some DX MR16 housings.
