Hi, sorry if this is yet another topic on the famous chunky monkey, didn’t want to revive old topics again (some people seem to find it strange).
I’m learning all i need to before i even dare access the driver, but could someone with experience tell me how many amps the driver can manage before it gets too hot for its own good (and my joy)?
Some people have said about rewiring the emitters to 3P4S without mention of changing anything in the driver. Is this driver then a variable output? Is there even such a thing? Because if it is, then my original plan will go ahead as normal, otherwise, i’d probably do something else to stick within the 18V driver output. Which brings me to my next question.
If i were to string 3 6V XHPs in series and drive them at 5A, would i risk burning up anything in the driver? It is 5A through a single channel after all, whereas in stock form it is only getting 1.33A in each of the 2 channels, according to the 3.68A reading at the tailcap.
Also would like to know a ballpark figure for driver efficiency.
