    H6Flex or H6CC are very good drivers but for automotive application you will need power supply filter before them (this will apply for all drivers not designed specificaly for automotive application).

    What is a power supply filter or what does it do? Why would it be needed in an automotive application?

    I want to use these lights for off road Driving.
    I am running a night saffari Travel agency we need good lighting system with long backup.
    Hid or halogen are not good for us due to short back up

    Hi,

    These work up to 12V at 3A and only cost $10.

    Or this works up to 18V at 3A and only cost $5.

    I've got no experience with either though I have 2 of the second ones on the way as we speak. Bit annoyed I didn't find the LCK ones first though as their mode selection is much better (none of this strobe crap).

    I need driver for single Cree XML T6. It's 3.6V, 3A. I would like to power it on 12V adapter. Can someone reccomend me something like step down converter...? It's for my LCD projector project. This is my first time i use Cree XML T6 diode so I'm not that familiar how to do it.

    Thank you!

    Those drivers are for a single Led, what about to use a DC/DC converter? I have the same issue, I am building a light for 6 xml and 6 xpg I am thinking in connect three in serie, four groups.

    Some DC/DC converters had adjustable voltage output, but my doubt is about the currents, most of this had a max of 3amps.

    Very cheap in ebay...

    I have as well a DC/DC that had three adjustments, current, volts and fill. BTW, I dont know hot to adjust the fill funtion...

    Would this last be a good option???

    semelab makes a great semiconductor voltage regulator that would work great on the front end of the driver. I am also looking at the taskled drivers, yeah they are expensive but the work great. I would like it if I could find a single mode driver in the cheap ones. It is irritating to cycle through the modes to get back where you want.

    For automotive applications use drivers that can handle voltage spikes up to 80V or even 120V, or they wont last long. Hyperbuck and hyperboost are the ones you should look at for such applications.
