It may be ugly....., but it is very efficient.
9 Watts on my wattmeter. Three Cree Q2's running @ 700 ma.
95% efficient switching power supply.
Easily outperforms Compact Fl. of twice the wattage in down-throw applications.
Color still in the 6000° K range.
Now back to design on my 7 Cree Q5 AC light.
