Nice homemade dealio Gordon!! Why $10 for the driver? Is it super high quality or expensive because you bought only 1?

I got way into building RV LEDs several years back. Still have boxes of constant current drivers wasting away in the garage. They were cheapo stuff from ali express or similar. Cost pennies there and then marked up huge once it hits the states.

Thanks!

Custom built driver with very tight regulation and low ripple.

The parts are expensive to buy in small quantity from domestic suppliers. Get certificates of authenticity for everything so I know I'm not building with counterfeit parts that are too common these days.

Driver uses a shielded inductor, automotive grade capacitors and diodes. Features adjustable output current and very small size.
