Help needed identifying driver components.

Firstly, no these are not strictly drivers for use in flashlights. However they do use much of the same components.

I’m new to the forums and am hoping you can give me some help identifying some driver components.

I’d like to know everything from the type of board to all the components on them if possible.

I’m wanting to duplicate them for personal use only and want to build a parts list. If you know where I can source the components at a good price please chime in with that info as well.

This first one is a single sided driver, it can push 2 amps. It boosts from 4 to 5 volts. The board is 8.64mm by 8.82mm.

The next driver is double sided. 12mm by 9.25mm, it can handle over 5 amps, it boosts from 3.7 to 5.2 volts.

Thanks in advance for the help guys. I’m just getting into building drivers, but I figure why not build good ones.

I see a whole lotta capacitors, but there’s no way to know their value from a picture. The black components I’m not familiar with. Maybe someone else can answer.

My Favorite Modded Lights: X6R, S8 , X2R , M6, SP03

Thanks, the capacitors are what I would be changing to tailor the output amperage to my needs. I don’t need to know exactly what the values are for those.
