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.
Others have reported that the driver gets quite hot.
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.
