    I got a LM2596 board for that bad boy if you want.

    Thanks for the offer fella but I've got a 15a buck step down for this box. Its quite a beast with its 2 heatsinks. Not quite big enough to warrant a 50mm deep box but I couldn't find another one that was long and high enough to fit all this stuff into. Sorry to say but the lm2596 can only handle 2a according to the specs.

    I read they can only chuck out 6v.
    They look good though. Chegs has been going on about them for a while. I might need to give one a try. Cheers?

    Was thinking that chip had heat-sinks so it must be wasting battery power in the form of heat.

    Raptors output is max 6 volts @ 20amps that's 120watts. You going for more than 120 watts? 97% efficiency too so its going to create minimal heat.

    I think that will be more than enough wattage for a good vape but I want to push the boundaries a bit. The board I've got still puts out 8.2v from an 8.4v source. I've got it now so I might as well use it.
    Raptor next time I think as the size makes it better I think.

    I'm not sure but was looking round Farnell site and although they are out of stock, it would seem they also carry the Raptor plus smaller output devices and also a 50A board/chip. If they can get Raptor chips then we save on that idiotic £12 charge on the other site.
