So I have got 4x 2C maglites and 6 AW C cells, along with two AW Drivers. My plan is to build two 5761’s with the drivers, along with one Phillips 7388 for run time(like the WA1111). I ended up with a blue, purple, gray, and silver 2C—I really like the form factor. The question is should I be looking at any other bulbs?

The Osram 64275 is another option.

correct me if wrong, but I think that the 64275 drowing a >6 amps will have some problem running with AW "C" li-ion cells. he raccomanded in his thread a Max Continuous Discharge Rate @ 5A...

According to Lux.

64275 is pulling 6.6 amps with 1,285 bulb lumens
5761 is pulling 5.5 amps with 1,237 bulb lumens

With the AW soft start the 5761 sounds pretty ideal.
Somewhere buried AW recomends the phillips version 7388 over the WA 1111....this only draws 3.3 amps, and I have a modamag clickie on the way for this one.
