Mountain electronics driver question.

Hello everyone, Iam going to be building a convoy triple. Iam thinking of using nichia leds, what is the best high power driver I can get at mountain electronics?

For a FET+1 driver, just get this, with the standard firmware:

However, if you still want very high output, but with regulation, I would advise you to look at LED4Power’s driver:

It can have regulated currents of up to 12A. However, I would recommend picking the 6A setting for the best balance between power and usability:

The LED4Power driver is probably the best one for your application. Using 3×219Cs LEDs at 6A, you will still have 1800 lumens of pure power, and that 1800 lumens will stay regulated until the battery is empty.

What about 17mm DrJones H17Fx Driver w/ lucidrv2 – 7135 + FET from MTNElectonics?
Althought that’s only 3amps.

Good still. But if you want regulated output, the LED4Power A4 driver is your best bet while still being very high power.
