Not to sure of the configuration so far still new to the b2flex driver first time using one but will set it up to one of the pre progamed settings something like 350,700,1000,1200ma
this is a head lamp for walking so i have to be careful not to drive it to hard as air movement is limited at walking pace.
still learning so never took into account the 1v needed for driver as well ? so then what would be optimal battery configuration then?

· A waste of time it is is

How hard are you driving them? forward voltage is about 3.5V @ 1500mA?

That gives you about 10.5V, plus the head room for the b2flex - 1 volt?
No, 1 volt was good for the bflex but the b2flex wants more. From the manual (see George I do read ;) )

The following table illustrates the minimum voltage difference versus current for 1 LED and 2 LEDs
(or more) to ensure the driver remains in current regulation.
Number of LEDs (typ Vf 3.4V) Current Voltage input (Min)
1 350mA Vf + 0.8V
1 500mA Vf + 1.1V
2+ 500mA ΣVfn + 1.2V
2+ 750mA ΣVfn + 1.3V
2+ 1000mA ΣVfn + 1.5V
2+ 1200mA ΣVfn + 1.6V
2+ 1500mA ΣVfn + 1.7V
