    I'm working on a project that consists of a 800w LED light on a drone as a payload to iluminate subjects at night.

    I'm using 30v 100w leds hooked up to some 400w step up voltage led drivers that takes 25v from the 6s lipo to 30v to power the LED'S.

    My struggle is that i keep blowing the fuses on some drivers, it's my first time building a project like this and Im not sure why this is happening. A friend of mine says that as the batery drains to storage voltage or even less, the driver keeps pushing the amps to still provide enough voltage to keep the lights on. Can anyone here confirm if this is true?
    Does anyone here have built or own One to point me in the right direction?

    The truth is that when i was working on the bench i might have tried with a storage lipo just for convenience and testing purposes, i'm still yet to try with a fully charged lipo.

    It is a 15amp fuse

    I Will post some details and pictures.

    Thanks

    Would help if i'd want to spend like 700$ on the drivers alone, i've seen their products and look really good but way to expensive for this project i don't have that kind of budget to be honest
