This driver is missing 2 amc7153s. I dont know how many are on the other side but current = number of AMCs *  0.35A

Probably 4 of the 7135 regulators on the other side for 2.8 amps. Those are common.

I am not familiar with all the Convoy drivers. Do they actually have a 5 amp type… I don’t think it would be a driver that uses 7135 regulators as that would need 14 of them (and would be 4.9 amps.

Looks like a 6 × 7135 driver for a total of 2100 ma

Driver on the photo is 2100mA. It is 6×7135, I’m 100% sure.

Convoy’s linear drivers for 5-6A are based on FET, not amc7135 chips and are completely different.

Both captainkirk and dick33 are correct.

Thank you. I’ve been having problems with the flashlight on 35% and 100% with a 18350 battery rated for 3A continuous discharge and needed to rule out if it was the driver or battery.
