Got it working- it was just my batteries that were the problem! Thanks again!
i am going to make a similar version for my school 40 hour project thats due in 6 months getting started now!
jeffmazter,Thanks for responding! 1) I'm actually using three different batteries wired in series to power the driver- one 3.75 V 32650 Lithium Ion battery; one 1.5 V D Cell Alkaline Battery; and one 3 V Lithium watch battery. (Long story short- I meant to order two 32650 batteries but only ordered one, so the Alkaline battery and Watch battery are providing the needed voltage boost until the new 32650 arrives.)When I tested the battery pack with a multimeter, it read around 8.25 Volts. I believe that should be enough for the driver, as on the website it says it accepts from 5.5 - 15 Volts. 2) Thanks for that helpful link! I actually tested the current that the Driver was outputting to the LED, and it looks to be around 0.2 Amps, which seems like it would correspond to the Low-Power mode. 3) I tested all of the electrical connections with the resistance setting on my multimeter, and everything seems to check out4) I emailed kaidomain... hopefully they'll get back to me!Here is a link to a video I took of the blinking pattern: https://streamable.com/aaqrHere's a few images of my project- I'm building a Bike Light out of parts for Mag-Lite flashlights, and right now I'm just trying to make sure that all of the LED parts work before permanently installing everything. The pictures are of my battery pack made from the barrel of an old maglite, and a multimeter measure of the batteries voltage.Thanks again! :DMU5ICI4N
Jeffmazter406,So, I got the Driver and XM-L LED, but I seem to be having a problem. I can't switch out of Low Mode! Every time I wore my LED up, it remains on low mode and blinks every 5 seconds or so. I believe that this low-power-blinking is supposed to be for when the driver overheats, but obviously that can't be happening! Any idea how to fix this? Thanks.
OK, Thanks! I'm thinking of using your mod for a high-powered bike light I'm building :)
Great instructable! Does anybody know how one would switch "modes" (low, medium, Hugh) with this LED driver?

This is amazing. I will have to make something similar.
What does it mean when it says 5/8 inch plywood but then says 10 by 3 by 1/8? I'm making this for a school project and I'm shopping today someone please respond asap
Hi, I'm a history teacher and am thinking about having my class build something like this, but I am also interested in your history/business note - do you have any more detail about that? I love teaching info that doesn't make the history books!
Is it possible to use this for a die cut press?
