Fancy Flashlights AA 14500 driver
« on: August 07, 2013, 10:07:31 PM »


Amp draw at battery

Led amps

LED voltage

Single Turnigy AA 2200 mAh LSD battery. Starting voltage 1.4v.









LiFePO4 Coolook 14500 battery. Starting voltage 3.6v










This driver was purchased from Fancy Flashlights.

Fancy Flashlights specs are listed below.

Driver diameter: 16mm

With copper contact on the back

Input voltage:1.2-4.2v. Can work with 1xAA /14500

3-Mode:  Hi>Lo>Strobe

1xAA---800ma. 1x14500---1000ma

I was testing with the above two batteries as well as a Trusfire flame 14500 3.7 volt battery charged to 4.1 volts which the driver is advertised as being suitable. Before testing was completed the driver stopped working with this battery. I have not included any results for it as I do not feel that this driver will handle that hi voltage. On testing the above two batteries again after the failure with the Trustfire battery the results had not changed. I will say though that on high, current draw at the battery was 1.5 amps on hi.

The  Led used for the testing was an XM-L.

The driver does have 3 modes as advertised. The most disappointing aspect of this driver to me was that it has next mode memory which in my opinion is pointless. The driver board measured at its maximum diameter was 16.2mm.

The driver did not come with the led wires. They are there for testing.

When the big picture is to big, look for a point you can start at and build from there.
