Thank you!
It was my last review. I enjoyed doing that one about the DBS. It's short and crisp..
It's still one of my best flashlights.

You're welcome.

Is your DX 7882 driver still ok running at 2xRCR123 or 6 volts since 2008? The specs at DX say it is only good for 1xAA which is 1.5v input so I'm wondering about its lifespan at 6 volts input. I plan to use it as the upgrade driver for my 2xRCR123A Cree Q5 and Cree R2 lights.

Many thanks in advance! :thumbsup:

I usually run it on one 18650 cell. Occasionally I have been using 2 x CR123 primary cells without incident. Be aware that QC varies with that driver, I know about at least four variations or generations of the driver. I use it because I get good results with one 18650 cells, then I have no need for CR123 primary cells.

Hello All,

Here are two drivers with that programming (had it a while ago at least):

1A version
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.7879

1.2A version (ignore the product pics, they show another driver)
http://www.kaidomain.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductId=1696

But be aware that the specs seem to have changed a bit as this thread was posted a long time ago. There's also lots of strange strobe modes in that interface.

thank you Stefan, it seems this is the one I was looking for. If only they would perfect their product descriptions. Most of the time ordering through those shops feels like buying a pig in a poke.

anyway thanks!!
