Ok, I am starting down the road of building a simple 3x Q5 light using 1000ma buck puck... its a simple achesalot home brew to start me off.
I am wiring the 3x Q5's in series, using the 3023 1000ma buck puck from Led Supply with 5k pot. I need some checking a few things out
2x Q5's would require 11.1 volts. Correct?
Plus one for the buck puck and now I am at 12v. Correct?
To supply the required power I would need to wire and still get respectable run time I am thinking I need to wire an 8 cell pack in 4p2s (I tried a 6 pack and it hasn't got the juice). That should give me 14.8v. Correct?
Let me know. I also read that the buck puck pots are rather inconsistent so I might replace it with a hi/low resistor set up = 1000ma full power to 300ma lo power.
Thoughts guys? Thanks in advance.
