Need parts recommendation for some modding

Hi.
Some time ago I bought lot of parts from user here and didn’t have much time to use them. I also have some from before.
Now I have some time and would need suggestions on some parts.

I’m looking for best performance I can get. I can buy more hosts, leds or drivers to make this all work Smile

Here is what I have now:

Convoy s2+ host
2x Convoy m1 host
Convoy c8+ host
Convoy c8 host

—————-
Copper pill for S2+ (kiriba-ru) with custom retaining ring.
Carclo 10507 triple TIR
Mpcb 20mm 3XP mosX MCPCB (with MOSFET+NTC+wires) Samsung LH351D 90 cri 4000k
Driver LD-B4 6A with wires and springs (low resistance) soldered.
Can I use this together in S2+? How will this driver work with leds?
—————-

—————-
Noctigon 32mm triple nichia 4500k 219b-v1 9080 parallel
LEDIL CUTE-3-SS TIR
C8TT head (kiriba-ru)
I need driver for this
—————-

2x Noctigon XP 16mm nichia 4500k 219b-v1 9080
1x L4p 16mm nichia 4500k 219b-v1 9080
1x L4p 16mm Luxeon V

LD-A4 3Amp 17mm
2x Astrolux BLF X6 driver

Hey mate! Can you define “best performance”? Do you mean highest peak output, highest consistent output without the need to regulate the heat, highest output with thermal regulation at room temperature? What sort of environment are you going to be using your flashlights? Do you have a specific use case? Are CRI and Tint important above all else? What are your CRI and tint preferences? All these things are important. If you would clarify, I could gladly point you in a direction. I can’t guarantee it will be the right direction, but hey, it’s all about the journey (unless it’s a frustrating one, then the kids will keep asking “Are we there yet?) Big Smile

A triple ’351 in an S2+ with Cu pill would be soooooooo nice. Make it nice and floody like a TO46R, and you got a keeper.

Dunno about the driver you have listed. 6A would be kinda okay for the LEDs (2A each), but would get hella hot, hella fast.

I think highest output with regulation would be the way to go.
No specific use case, just want to use parts to make something nice Smile
CRI and tint are not that much important for me, but I like NW the most.

This driver can be set to lower current if needed, from 6A down to 4A in 0.250Amp steps from UI.

3xLH351D in S2+ looks perfect! I love it!

I will probably move this to my copper S2+, this deserves something cooler, not gray host Smile



Now, can I get recommendation on other things?
How much current for 3×219b-v1, single 219b-v1 and Luxeon V?

Less than 4amps for 219s I believe.

I have a couple s2+, building triple 218bs as well. If you have any questions feel free to msg me.
