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

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- It's very small and compact - I like the high, middle and low modes - One, or two serially connected Li-ion battery cell is an accepted power source
Cons:
- Strobe and S.O.S. modes is useless for me - The factory soldered cables is very thin, the black cable is loosened immediately (not a big a cons, I replaced the thin cables to thicker one)
Other:
I'm using this compact driver to drive a Cree XP-G R5 bin LED. The driver max. current lower than the LED max. current, so less heat generating during operation. You can increase or decrease the max. current, if you replace the sense resistor (0.25 ohm) to lower or higher.
Bottomline:
Good driver, I buy another one in the future.
