    3.6~8.4V 5-Mode 3W Circuit Board for Flashlights

    posted by ahorton on 09/18/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice and tiny. Very cheap. I wired it up and got light, it seemed to be running about 700mA off a 3.7V cell. Very quick and simple.
    Cons:
    Mine never worked the way I thought it would. I couldn't switch modes so I inspected the board and noticed that one component...

    Great Driver

    posted by neilf1999 on 06/02/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    At 17mm wide it will fit most applications. The wide voltage range allows you to try different battery types to get the best combination. Returns to HIGH mode after it is off for about 5 seconds. I prefer this method of controlling the modes rather than the...
    Cons:
    It is about 10-11mm high, but you can compress the 2 boards slightly if needed, but not much..maybe about 1mm.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Good little driver, will go fit right in into many flaslights, the modes are nice with high..low...slowstrobe..faststrobe...and flash every 10 sec. If you keep it off for more than 3 seconds it will go back to high mode which is good since that is the most...
    Cons:
    The survivability if dropped may not be that high since the two boards are sandwhiched on top of each other.

    Very nice little driver!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Very small, simple to use. Not a big fan of "flicking the battery power", but I use these with an external microcontroller so it's not an issue for me.
    Cons:
    Doesn't achieve full 1A (800mA seems to be the max). No schematic available.
