If it's not a problem having 5 mode, this can be a good driver

it doesn't have to be 5 mode..if you connect the one star to the outer ring it can be a 3 mode hi-med-low..I have a few of my lights set up this way with that driver..forget what star exactly but there is a thread on the driver on this forum..good driver for the price btw

I have replaced a couple Manafont drop ins with that same driver and the difference in high is not noticeable to the naked eye.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

That's "better" than the default driver since I don't think they even have regulation be default. This is linear regulation, but it does mean it wastes some power when the batteries are fresh, and lose some efficiency overall, but I don't think driving the xml with no regulation is a good idea in the first place.
