[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.

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

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?
