[4K Review] CONVOY S12 - 2300 Lumens - 219C 4000K

I think this’ll be great for the price in the Messiah tint – 5700K

I really like mine, but looking for a driver that will give it a couple of amps more. I think at 6 amps it is underpowered, but the trick is that I would like around 8-9 amps regulated, not a full on FET driver.

FW1A, LH351D 4000k (second favorite)
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (favorite light!)
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k
S2+, XM-L2 T6 4C

Needs a 9 amp XPL-HI version. 6A is more 219B level current.

virence.com rosy 3500K R9080 Wizard Pro, MF01 Mini 4000K R9080 (needs more 219B), super rosy 3000K E21A mix Skilhunt H04 on it's way

Mine is 6 amp 219C 4000k and I think it really needs a 9 amp even in it. I understand these are made for the mass market, and I would not want it to be a full blown FET driven light… That is not needed, but a strong regulated light would be an improvement. The 219C can handle 3 amps with very little effort! OTOH a 219B with sw45k might be the ticket!

You could always replace the current sense resistor.

Have thought about it… Any idea on the value it would take to bump it 2 to 3 amps?
