You will need 2× 18350 in series to operate the xhp50 , i hope you already know . Smile

On the spec sheet it said, that you could solder a jumper on pin 1, for single cell operation. Otherwise 2 or more cells in series

With 1 cell you operate 3V leds like xp-e2 xp-g2 xp-l xm-l2 etc .

With 2 cells you operate 6V leds like xhp50 xhp70 etc .

This isn’t a boost driver so you can’t use 1 battery to operate a 6V led . That’s why you will need 2×18350 in the flashlight , with the 2-cell operation “pin” soldered and “6V parts” soldered.

Maybe he was looking to sell a set number of them before lowering the price, and yours was the one that put him over. In which case, we thank you! Silly

Will this fit for Convoy C8?
I would love to change the led with XHP50 OR XHP70?

This is not a buck or boost driver, it can be set up in 2S. So, with 2 18350’s you could drive a 6 volt led with this driver. That said, PM and ask if it works well for that or not… I have not gotten my first 2 in yet, so I really have not experience with them.

If set up for a 6Ved then it will work for MTG or XHP 50/70.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

It is a constant current driver,but it has "software" DD option on high mode. 20Amp and two big 6V emitters would be out-of-spec for this 17mm driver.
