Driver recommendations for xhp70.2

Hi, I was using 2x BL70s on my motorcycle for last 9-10 months, it was working great until few days ago when unfortunately water seeped in and both drivers are gone. now instead of replacing the driver with same one, i want to run both lights using 12v xhp70.2 leds @ 2amps, total would be 48watts from lead acid battery. so can you guys recommend me a driver with following requirements -

1. input voltage should be 12-16v ( at least 14.8v minimum )
2. output 12v minimum for xhp70.2, 12v version.
3. single mode (preferred) 2amps output. or atleast it should not require separate switch to change modes.
4. price including shipping should be lower than 30-35usd for 2 drivers.
5. driver diameter should be 34mm maximum.

i asked here because most drivers i see for xhp70 is limited to 6v output, that would be not as efficient as 12v output because input is 13-14.8v in this situation. thanks for the help.

Hi, How did you connect two BL70s to motorcycle? I would like to do the same thing.

If you want to run the xhp70.2 off 12v, then you’ll need a driver that can handle 3s input, or run a 6v xhp70.2 on a buck driver. There aren’t many 1 mode drivers like that though, but you can get a programmable one that has a single mode group option.

The other option is you can find some appropriate current limiting resistors you can just run them direct drive off the 12v battery. a good place for drivers is Kaidomain.com, or Aliexpress.
