So how big of a deal would it be to feed the lpc 815 diode? I can get around 360mA OR 500mW (with fixed value resistors) but i cant seem to get at 400-420mA.

Default So, I might alter this project into a mini mag.

Here's what I have so far...

With a clicky in the tail cap and a 14650?

Thought's?

Yes, I know...I clipped the tag off the lm317

My original images died for some reason so i'll just post the album link

^^^^ Thats pretty sweet!!! I love seeing try DIY drivers in builds. I gotta admit, I never thought a LM317 based driver would fit in a small mag lite host. Nice job!!
