    - Very very bright - Alluminium star allow you to fix the led on the body of the lamp - The star is very good for heatsink - Easy to solder - Excellent for DIY project - Maybe it can cost less expecially now that newer led are out, but it's not a bad price I use it to mod a 18650 based flashlight and it's simply perfect. No problem for heatsink and ... Read more

    This is an awesome bright led for the price. I also chosen this over the Q5 and I'm also glad I did. Star is very very well built. Led is perfectly centered. Solder spots are perfect. 20mm star gives you a good starting point for heatsinking. None at all. I bought this led for modding a about 20 years old 2C Maglite that was not working for 15 years ...

    it's very bright and gives a nice white light, and it's also cheap. i have chosen this over the Q5 and i'm glad i did so. none i built a custom flashlight using this LED (mounted using thermal paste on an aluminium heatsink from the chipset -north bridge- of a computer mother board), the sku.26107 circuit to power it (from 4x AA -R6- 1.2V rechargeable ...

    conveniently mounted on a start with positive and negative points to solder to. light output to die surface area ratio is very high, I think the highest of any emitter on the market today this makes it have the BEST throw available. a little to purple for me, but it's not that bad at all I mounted this start to a head sink I made for a big maglite I ...

    I bought 10 pcs for my DRL. I used 2 sku.13557 to drive them (5 pcs in parallel). It's very bright even if I drive 5 pcs in parallel with one driver. In this way there is no overheat sink. If you use one driver for one led you should use proper cooling I got no problem with delivering. It took 2 weeks. For mine leds all will be ok with solder. I haven'... Read more

    I tried to mount this baby in my TikkaXP but to no avail. So I mounted it in an encapsulated star mount in another flashlight. To put it simply, this bad boy is bright white. Lumem output compared to Lumiled was staggeringly different. Almost put it on par with my P3D in color and initial intensity on high, not turbo. Upon initial inspection of this ... Read more

    Bright and inexpensive replacement part suitable for upgrading virtually any LED flashlight. When used with good current source driver, it provides continious bright luminous flux suitable for all activities - even for caving. Current source driver is a must, as direct connection to batteries makes this LED very ineffective. Also, I don't like the color,... Read more

    Bright replacement emitter for older LED lights. Nice tint. My emitter was NOT centered. Its actually off quite a bit. I thought this emitter would be brighter in a 3AAA light that it went into. It has a little more throw and spill. Its not impressive at all when compared to either my AKORAY or C3 with lithium. The aluminum on the board was quite a ... Read more
