PROS
Superior output in High mode
CONS
Fast PWM flickering (barely noticeable) in Medium and Low mode
I'm using this driver in conjunction with warm XM-L emitter and Eneloop NiMH batts in a small twisty 1xAA host (Smiling Shark SS-5002). Output in High mode is great for an 1xAA flashlight (above 150lm), but the downside to this is high battery drain current (slightly above 2 Amps), so this driver isn't quite suitable for alkaline batteries (that, if you're planning to use it solely in highest power setting). Also the heat generated by XM-L and driver itself is tremendous - good thermal path is a must! There's barely audible inductor whine in lower modes, really nothing to be concerned about. This is a fine driver overall - it delivers what's advertised. I'm planning to use one in the future, for modding an Uinfire B68 zoomable throwie.
