Default High current round linear feeler

I am planning on selling some round mohgasm drivers,

Would there be interest in some higher current options?
I was thinking about
2.2A: (2.211A)
2A: (2.031A)

Heatsinking will be that much harder for higher currents,
but they will work fine as long as the driver is heatsinked with a good thermal path to the pill/host.

Default Re: High current round linear feeler

Since you are asking, I'll be honest and say that at those currents I want something more efficient with less heat. I think there are several options available and several on the horizon. For me, I don't think that I want to try and heatsink that inefficient of a driver at those wattages.

Thanks,

If there is no interest by the time I get the PCB's from norway,
I will just go with the standard currents.

Default Re: High current round linear feeler

I just bought 5 round Mohgasm drivers, I think the market was flooded after he shut up shop.

I can get the high wattage precision SMD resistors through work and pick the current myself so not really interested, although some may not have the soldering skils.
