Looking at Ian's database, there doesn't seem to be an awful lot of choice and the few usable ones don't come cheap.

Too true, hoping its out of date Wink or some drivers have improved... may have to take pot luck...

Take a look over on Jayki.com. There was recently reference to 2.8A drivers.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

new to the forum, but been watching it for some time

 

i personally have not seen ANY 8.4V p7 drivers that are reliable nor actually 2800ma  in the end!

this model will go to 6 volt, and i installed it today in my MTE DX P7 flashlight.  works like a charm. 2.73 amps and the tailcap!!!

 

best one ive used so far

DX has a SSC P7 8.4v driver Im currently using @ over 10v , http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.20330

I cant believe its still going , but it seems like a decent driver for the money ... 

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….
