    PS, those look like some great lights!
    Are the 6 x 18650s in a Goliath/Behemoth body? or a monster long Mag body?
    I'll wait for the new firmware please.
    It took me a long time to decide on those 3 setups - had around 20 finalists to chose from. Your regulator has created a problem - now almost anything is possible it's so hard to decide. Great problem to have

    The 6 cell light - 6 x SonyV 18650s in a 6D Mag.
    Currently using 5 x Sonys with no softstart - only about 17.2 vbulb, should be good at 19.5v!

    OK. Well, the new software is all set, so I'll get them programmed and ship them on Monday.
    You might look into the 4000 mAh 26650s from battery space. Same length, more capacity.

    You might want to be carefull with that 19.5V. I did some test runs with a new 64458 today at 19.5V. It didn't last too long.

    Great. (about the regulators)
    Regarding the 64458 - can I change to max 18.5v max please. I'm used to 17.2v , so 18.5v will be good. I can go higher later if I want. Thanks for the warning.
    Regarding battery choice - shipping to Australia can make cell choice very expensive and availability here is limited. I just ordered 7 x IMR26500 from AW - $8 registered ship So my 6D can become a 5D with 50% more capacity and less sag so I'm happy.
    Same reason for the Sony cells - Makita drill packs with 10 cells were available $100 AUS. Emoli pack was about $40/cell for 26mm size!

    OK. I'll take note of that battery voltage. 18.5V.
    I've shipped things to and from Australia. It's crazy expensive.

    For the new compile time options, I can program these options before shipping if the buyer wants:

    Ordering options:
    Softstart Speed: Fast, Med, or Slow
    Low voltage warning mode: Pulsing or dimming
    Low voltage shutdown type: Timed (how many seconds) or undervolt (87% or 94%), or Both.
    Over temperature trigger temperature, 50, 60, 70, or 80C
    Over temperature shutdown enabled? If so how many seconds?
    Response to condition time: 1/8, 1/4, or 1/2 second.

    Examples:
    Softstart: Med
    Low Volt Warning: Pulsing
    Low volt shutdown: Both. Timed:30 seconds, Undervolt: 87%
    Over Temp trigger: 60C
    Over Temp Shutdown: Yes, 10 seconds:
    Response: 1/8 second

    Softstart: Med
    Low Volt Warning: Dimming
    Low volt shutdown: Undervolt: 87%
    Over Temp trigger: 70C
    Over Temp Shutdown: None:
    Response: 1/4 second

    Hi Jimmy

    Can't quite get the over temp situation !

    How do you know there has been a trigger ?

    After an OverTemp Trigger is there a Behavior ?
    and then
    if option - Shutdown after seconds ?

    Overall - Cool Options

    Cheers
    Pete

    The AVR has an onboard temperature sensor (thermistor) that can be read using an internal ADC channel. You simply read the ADC to get the value. That value equates to a temperature. If there are X number of consecutive readings above or below a certain number it activates the high temperature mode. Right now there is only one high temperature mode, dimming (to 35% of Vbulb), with an optional shutdown Y seconds later.

    Please program 2 of my regulators (5761/64458) as below , suspect
    Over Temp trigger: 80C would be better for my 64458.

    Softstart: Slow
    Low Volt Warning: Pulsing
    Low volt shutdown: Both. Timed:30 seconds, Undervolt: 94%
    Over Temp trigger: 60C
    Over Temp Shutdown: Yes, 10 seconds:

    Oh crap, typo! I'm clogging up your sales thread.
    edit - might as well put one correct , updated order:

    I’ll take:
    3 drivers
    #1 set volt:11.1v, low volt:12.4v 1185 - 4 x AW C LION
    #2 set volt: 7.1v, low volt: 6.1v 5761 - 2 x KD D LION
    #3 set volt:18.5v, low volt:18.3v 64458 - 6 x 18650 LiMn
    Total: $127

    Please program 2 of my regulators (5761/1185) as below.
    For the 64458 , same except Over Temp 80C

    Softstart: Slow
    Low Volt Warning: Pulsing
    Low volt shutdown: Both. Timed:30 seconds, Undervolt: 94%
    Over Temp trigger: 60C

    Thanks. I'm traveling at the moment, but will get them together on Monday.

    Just a note though. a 5761 won't last long on 7.4V. If you do want to push the 5761 that hard, might I suggest the slow start for that one.

    Forgive me if it has been asked before, but will you ship via 1st class mail? Should be about $5 cheaper. About $1.50 w/ tracking for 1 board. Let me know.

    I was basing my numbers on LuxLuthor's fine thread http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...d.php?t=179748 specifically http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h7...bulbs/5761.jpg. But I took what you said to heart and searched thru all the post on CPF I could find on the subject and I see what you mean. Seems that some "batches" of 5761 are different than others. So I am open to a lower set voltage. What would you suggest 7.0, 7.1 or 7.2? I am also wondering how long the slow start is in the latest programing? The nice thing about your product is that if I do blow a lamp I can always dial it down a bit. I was looking for atleast an 8 hour lamp life.

    As a side note I have 6 of these lamps. 5 new and 1 installed in one of my favorite mods which is a 2D Mag 5671 MOP reflector with a 300mm FL aspherical lens powered by 2 x A123. I would estimate I have 20+ hours on this mod and the 5671 lamp is still going strong.

    It has been said before but let me reiterate, thanks for making this product available. I missed out on getting AWR's hot drivers and your product is like a 2nd chance.

    Fulgeo,

    You should be good with 7.1 to 7.2V on that bulb for 8 hours. With a DMM, it's easy to adjust Jimmy's PhD with a small blade screwdriver.

    As a person owning a good number of AWR's hotdriver, they work just fine in simple, low current setups with battery pack closely matched to set output voltage.

    The PhD versions worked out by AlanB, Jimmy, wquiles and others is far superior in features, durability, performance, adjustability, and being an open source project that anyone can tinker with.

    Thanks for the info LuxLuthor. JimmyM please leave it on the medium soft start and change the set voltage to 7.2 volts on the #1 driver. If I run into problems I will dial it down. Thanks in advance!

    A123s are only 3.3V nominal. So 2 x A123s will not reach 7.2V for very long. Their charging finish voltage is only 3.6V each. It's no wonder you're getting a lot of life out of your 5761. You're running it on only 6.6V

    Correct. I find the color of the beam on par with my 9 x AA NiMH Mag85s. The A123 cells do not sag at 6.6v@5.3 amps, just a nice steady constant beam. The build I described in the earlier post is my most guilt free lumen incandescent.

    Happy mods!

    A 5761 on 6.6V is like playing football with a deflated ball.

    Hi JimmyM

    I'll take 1 regulator with the following specs:

    high voltage: 17.5
    low voltage: 15.0
    Osram 64633 (5 x IMR 26500)

    Total: $47

    Please program it with the following:
    Softstart: Medium
    Low Volt Warning: Pulsing
    Low volt shutdown: Undervolt 87%
    Over Temp trigger: 80C
    Over Temp Shutdown: Disabled
    Response: 1/8 second.

    Feel free to recommend alt parameters if I miscalculated anything - thanks.
