I assume that means you can get brighter light... Although from what I understand the Buckpucks still only put out 1 amp so you are limited if you are using those.

I was planning on ordering a few of those and playing with them - that is, if I can find anyone who actually has them - Cree doesn't seem to have the most user friendly product ordering process! Has anyone used the XP G U1? Or do you think that the DX Cree Q5 gets good enough results when scanning color images? - I haven't been able to find what the CRI value is for the Q5.
Turtle91 wrote:I have a question about the LED circit setup (ref the 20+ years since I've played with wires ). I want to have an on/off switch for the lights, and the dim working lights. When I hit the switch I want the lights to go full bright and then back to working intensity when I release the switch.

What I think this means - please correct me if I got it wrong - is that I put about a 350 ohm resistor in my switch which limits the current when I'm NOT pushing the button - giving me a dim working light.
Turtle91 wrote: When I push the button this bypasses the resistor - cuts the connection between ref and ctl completely - and the lights go full bright. In Daniel's picture - which I drew on below - it showed another resistor that I couldn't figure out the need for... Anyone have an idea if that is necessary??
