    Very new beginner question

    So, I had an Ozark Trail 200 lumen flashlight take a dump on me. Turns out the switch went out. I removed the XB-D led from the circuitry, hoping to use it in a build.

    What exactly am I going to need in order to make this happen, minus housing? I see talk of drivers and resisters, and while I have a basic understanding of electronic components from my years of guitar and amplifier repair, other than that, I'm at a loss.

    Thanks for all your help!

    In addition to the housing you'll need:
    -battery holder
    -thermal compound/thermal glue
    -lens cover

    You might not need all the parts, but most of them for sure.

    Deciding on a driver depends on a battery setup you'll have. In case of 1S batt setup you'll need a linear type of driver like lflex or 7135 based driver, in case of 2+S setup you'll need a buck driver like bflex.

    If you don't know where to search for the parts this would be a good place to start.
