    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:Can be used with voltages up to 18V so its a good option for Cordless work lights. Fit my Porter Cable work light with only minor modifications. After the mod it almost looks like it was made that way. Much much brighter than the original bulb. DX replaced the bad one....

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:An excellent well made drop-in. Despite it being superseded by the XP-G, XM-L and other emitters, let's face it, the small die size of the XR-E emitter makes for great throw in a light. My unit arrived and was packaged very well. The emitter appeared to be centered very... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Postal packaging was good, the damage to the module is not received. The light is very bright, surprisingly good given the low power consumption. White light, no blue or yellow. When powered from 4.5V corps almost never hot. Cons:When connected to a power source, it was... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:Bright, Cheap, and accepts a wide range of voltage input, so can be used in a variety of applications. Produces a fairly tight spot with a large halo of usable light. Only on and off without annoying modes. 2/3 the price of an XPG R5. Doesn't generate too much heat alth... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:I love this drop-in! It's the highest more efficient version (R2) of this led (XR-E), it's being sold for a good price, and it's in the right size (P60) not to mention it's a single mode version so no strobes to deal with. What's not to like! Cons:There are no... Read more
