To name one (set), the Sofirn C8F family of lights use a 17 mm driver with e-switch. These lights are simple, powerful, and flexible, even available as a host, as well as triple LED's and singles. I got a few of these lights - outstanding modder's platform.

The C8 popularized the 17 mm size, as well as P60's (power switch), and even bigger lights like the HD2010 (power switch also).

Is there temp regulation ? Have you measured the efficiency ?

Looks good. Nice job Quadrupel. A boost driver with good UI is not really available before this that I know of? What are the LED currents of the modes? I’m curious is the FW based on existing FW?

Another niche that needs filling is a linear FET driver with good e-switch UI. I would buy one for my H03.

There is overheat protection, you can set it manually, turn it on or off, but with off there is no turbo mode ;))
I have no proper tools to measure efficiency but should be much better than linear driver have anyway.
You can choose LVP level 3v; 2.5v and 2.2v
For reverse polarity using P-FET but , need to order new PCBs again with 3×3mm FET, because 2×2 is to weak. The soft is advanced , but its not open source, i can not edit it. I’m just replicating schematic with some improvement in PCB design and trying to use more powerful and cheaper components and its not so simple , because soft is coded for specific hardware and sensitive to any hardware changes; ;))

Nice!
Do you have it with a single mode 20w-25w version?

Also is that possible to order a version for a magnetic e-switch?
(Hall effect sensor – basically it is a switch that is connected to ADC)
I need one for my diving light.

Sorry, i don’t. Have no access to code, so UI as is. Its a simple e-switch .. short click , click&hold…double click…. you know. Have no idea is it works with hall sensor switch ;))

Sure, no commercial use of FW. ( Боже упаси (креститься ) DIY only Wink
Привет Фанарёвке от Stirlis (тот который послал льва и всех YLP адептов… и был забанен Big Smile )
Дрaйвер для D10 совместимый с прошивкой Tamagotchi – уже … ( шутка – гекон нервно курит в углу Evil )
Будет возможность купить драйвер без прошивки , которую сможете залить сами, через всроенный пого порт.

Boruit D10 Boost driver (in avatar) compatible with this Tamagotchi FW coming soon ! Big Smile And i can sell some drivers (hardware) without FW loaded . You can flash ATtiny85 your self, since the driver have PogoPin port Wink

Circuit and firmware link updated in first post . PogoPin Stick and 21mm PCB shared on Ospark and PCBWay.

A brief history in English. This guy Quadrupel aka Stirlis(on fonarevka) systematically violated forum rules and insulted forum members. After that, it was banned. And he decided to earn extra money on other people’s developments.
I strongly recommend do not buy anything from this dishonest person.

Not true. Tamagoshi shared FW to download for years. I made research and simplified circuit to be compatible with new generation of mosfets and diodes and made mine own PCB design.
To be honest i spend like 150$ on development and sold 4 or 5 drivers for 20$ each shipped .Id like to sell few more to get my money back . So why so jealous? Smile

As the author of this driver, I want to warn the forum readers that Quadrupel created this topic without my notification. Initially, he offered: “To reduce development costs, limited batch is available for sale. If interested PM .” This can be seen from the link at the web.archive.org: https://web.archive.org/web/20201231233223/https://budgetlightforum.com/...
After the ADE post, the topic author changed the first post.

I want to warn the readers of the forum that Quadrupel makes these drivers without my permission. He does not have the source code and does not able to provide technical support. The firmware and the scheme are published at the forum.fonarevka.ru, they are functional and you can build it for yourself and at your own risk, but please note that it is one of the first versions, which has been repeatedly updated later.

Once again, I want to inform you that I do not cooperate with Quadrupel and do not intend to do so in the future.

Mr. Tamagochi I want to thank you for sharing nice FW and i will update topic soon again to share with community my 20mm and 22mm PCB layout compatible with your FW .
Don’t worry mr, i don’t need your source code to support my hardware Big Smile
Anyone can use my pcb layout and design for free with your honestly shared FW Smile
Can you share your updated FW with this nice community? Smile
BTW same PCB layout works for both 6&12V FW only you need is to change resistors R4&R7 value .

To be honest

You should declare the sources of FW BEFORE AEDe comment.
You should ask Tamagotchi for use FW in yours PCB design developed for selling.
Now it looks like you try to uplift some money, but have been caught on hot.

Quadrupel, I thought you designed this driver because in your original post before changing it you just said you were selling it to cover development cost and did not mention any credit to original designer Tamagotchi, and worse you even make pcb with 'Quadrupel' and 'BLF' printed on the silkscreen, so you cannot say that blf members are 'complaining'. Maybe Tamagotchi did not put license, but you make it look like you designed it yourself.

This looks like original design page: http://forum.fonarevka.ru/showthread.php?t=37158

If you use his design and you make some improvement, you should at least describe in more detail. If you had permission from Tamagotchi surely blf members will still support you because not many people can read fonarevka forum. Unfortunately you still seem like you are not sorry for doing this when caught by AEDe and Tamagotchi frown

Another crying jealous hater from fonariovka? PCB designed by me, so i named like i wanted . You can design your own PCB and name it like you wish, download firmware from link above and open own mass production.

You may have design pcb yourself but is obvious it is a copy from Tamagotchi and the layout is similar. There is no problem in copying if you have permission and give credit, but you hide it. I am not hater and I learned about fonarevka.ru for the first time when reading about AEDe and Tamagotchi post. I am sure most people at BLF are understanding if you made mistake because everybody make mistake, but it is sad that you did not apologise. You definitely have skill so I hope you can learn from this and make some new design that everyone can enjoy.

Just a quick feedback on these drivers.

Talked with Quadrupel about getting 2 of these but to adjust them to run GT-FC40 and OP agreed it can be done and after some time it’s done. PP, shipped...

Meantime Tamagotchi chimed in and i got suspicious...

Drivers arrived, connected on Convoy M21C-U and i got crap. It can barely squeeze 1A on turbo...

Disapointed at least, not to mention poor soldering job.

Sorry Quadrupel but you should properly adjust first post with real pictures of what you’re offering.

We know you have great ideas but your execution needs to be tuned.

You did what? Convoy m21c-u have 6V led . I wonder how it works at all.
