Pros:
Driver seems to be well built. Its very easy to use, and on 6 nimh cells it drives 5 XRE R2s well. It was brighter than I thought it would be on high.
Cons:
Strobe and SOS
Other:
This driver barely fits in the neck of A M*g C tube. I used it in a D. 5 XRE R2s with the 18mm DX reflectors SKU 14598 (4 pack so you will need 2 packs) Wired the leds in sires made a light brighter than a P7 with a long throw and very smooth beam.
Bottomline:
This is the only cheap boost driver I know of that will drive 5 leds on 7.4 volts. This was the easiest multiple emitter light I ever made.
