good small driver – 18V 5W Cree Circuit Board for Flashlights (16.8mm*5.5mm) Reviews

posted by electronicholas on 06/07/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
good driver, does the job, small, not much heat, no noise
Cons:
i had to re-solder wires, as I think they need to be a bit thicker; but maybe it's just me..
Other:
I used in 5 flashlights with k2-s and they work just fine for 6 months now. I got 1.3 amps of 3 AAA batteries, measured at the clicker switch.
Bottomline:
works even for long periods of time, still have one extra that I bought just for backup... Also these are getting a bit old, as I recently jumped on to xmlt6 with 18650 batt, which is a lot more...
