    Driver for XM-L that doesn't require momentary switch?

    I'm looking at making a pair of lights for my trail / motard bike using some XM-Ls but so far it seems like the drivers that can supply up to 3A are all multi mode types that are operated by a momentary switch. All of my previous lights have been made with single mode drivers and I'd prefer to use them for this application so I can just hook the lights up to the bikes wiring and not have to press a separate switch whenever I want the lights on.

    Any suggestions?

    Looks like i might have found a solution- HipCC. It looks to be a single mode buck driver with a default drive current of 2.8A

    Anyone see a problem with that plan or got a better alternative?

    thanks

    As per Hendo, h6cc and adjust onboard trimpot to set desired current, ships set to a nominal 2.8A.

    cheers,
