Ok, more 7135's equals more amps on a basic driver board for 1 18650, I have got that. But, I would like to build a kit light that in standard form, might start with a simple L2m body that could contain 1 CR123a, 1 18350, 1 18650 battery or 2 18350's and if I added and extension tube I could use 2 18650's. This kit would likely include a P60 head and maybe 1 of the M3 heads with a high power driver and good LED. I could see the drivers needing to handle from 3.0 to 9 volts. It would be nice to keep some form of low voltage protection or notification and I am beginning to think this would not be possible without a different P60 module for 1 cell vs. 2 cells in series.

The question then becomes, what kind of driver do you use to cover the possible voltages? I would assume a buck driver, but I am not sure who makes a good unit. It would need to be 17mm and I would like it to fit a P60 I would like to have ML, 5-10%, 50% and 100% modes or something close when done.

Thanks Matt
