Cheap Cree driver – 3V~8.4V 5W Cree 5-Mode Circuit Board for Flashlights (16.8mm*6.3mm) Reviews

posted by Roboegg on 06/01/2010

Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
I used one of these, along with SKU 5937 and a spare Cree XR-E P4 emitter, to make a P60 drop in module. The driver is a perfect fit and pretty easy to fit. The five modes are very useful to conserve battery life-when needed. This would also make an ideal replacement for a broken driver in any torch using single XR-E Cree and 17mm driver card. For the price you can not go wrong.
Cons:
Wires attached to the card are very small and a bit tricky to solder for a novice. Does not come with any instructions.
Other:
It would be nice to have the full specifications for this driver so I could see if it would drive other LEDS eg Cree XP-E and XP-G. It would also be nice to know how efficient this driver is.
Bottomline:
Does exactly what it says on the can and is very good value. I would recommend this card.
