    Any one tried the Recom Drivers?

    I've just built a three lights using the Recom RCD 24's.
    Ordered these from Digi-Key on Sunday night they arrived here Tuesday morning they are without a doubt one of the best drivers I've ever used. They come in various outputs and pin or wiring configurations. The wire ones you see below are all hermetically sealed and potted so very easy to wire up and no heat generated.
    They are super efficient and very small.

    I have a custom twin IBlaast IX set up that uses these.
    Both lights have 9 XPG's each that scroll up & down their various settings together as one unit, so its like having one big bar light with 18 R5 XPG's. It is a very impessive light system that I guessing would have to be up around 6000 lumens when each of the 6 XPG triples are driven at their max setting of 1200ma.
    But I can't take the credit for the build. Eric from Nightlightning in New Zealand custom made this for me. He has put a lot of R&D into the application of these drivers for his mountain bike lighting products. So maybe email him to find out more. http://www.nightlightning.co.nz

    I had one of the basic (non dimmable) ones in an early build. It was easy to install and worked fine until I put the cells in back to front one day. There was a little pop, a very unpleasant smell and no more light! That was when I started using Taskled drivers for the reverse polarity protection, among other things

    never seen these before even after a year trolling these forums!

    Nice linky OP. Options are always good.

    Actually, I got mine from Cutter so they are readily available in the bike light world although I agree there hasn't been much discussion on these forums

    JezV, easy mistake to make, the search engine here isn't always user friendly.

    I enquired about these drivers back in March last year here and got no response then so went on to use the Teapot driver Troutie recommended instead
