    I wouldn’t worry about the electronics, just buy a ready made driver board & LED boards like the bflex or maxflex & LED boards
    You then only need 6 wires, two for battery, two for switch & two between the LED & driver boards.
    You only need an optic (lens) & you can fit them in a housing of your own design.

    As Snaps said

    it all depends on what you are wanting to build
    which leds
    and how many

    also your power source
    these all have a bearing on which driver board to use .

    if you can give a bit more info then we should be able to narrow it down as to which bits you require.

    Can any of you point me in the direction of some form of literature giving advice on the actual electronics side of building these things? I’m thinking of having a go myself – I have access to plenty of CNC machines, so no problem knocking up a nice shiny housing, but as far as the gubbins inside goes, I haven’t the foggiest. Can anyone enlighten me?

    Thanks guys – not really sure what I want, LED-wise. I was thinking along the lines of 4 or 5 in a cylindrical housing, perhaps something in the order of 1000-1500 lumens…

    Have a good browse around candlepower forums

    Just visit and you’ll find most stuff there.
