Is it cost effective for one tank ? Or you have been using this prototype for other applications as well ?
Thanks & Regards..

I am worried about that regulator doing more than 1A.. This is why i don't do high current bucks with regulators. They get hotter than the LEDS and die on me!

Overheating regulators also mean about 30% efficiency lost as heat. :)
