I bought this to replace the Nichia LED array in a popular 3xD camping lantern so it had a better tint and added brightness. The tint is pretty good (close enough to WG) although it varies toward the edge and centre
It was a bit tricky to solder the connections to make all 4 dies work in parallel because of the gap between the pins. I had to disassemble the lamp again as one of the dies stopped lighting up, maybe some wire would have worked better. I got this last year when it was on back order most of the time, took about 2 months to eventually get one.
Without DealExtreme parts like this are difficult or expensive to source, especially for those not within the US. Would definitely not have upgraded the lantern if this was not sold here. I wish they had an increased range of Cree and Seoul LEDS (eg. high CRI) so I could change the LEDs in all my torches.
