    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Two 5W LEDs in series (6,5V+6,5V=13V), which makses it suitable for connection to a 12V lead battery, which is kept at little above 13Volts with continuous charging. I have used several pairs of these for getting light into a storage room. Use of pairs of 5W LEDS instea... Read more

It'll hurt your eyes. -Double pads for positive and negative terminals makes for easy wire-routing in more advanced setups. -Most lenses/reflectors seems to fit this... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day Pros:The LED's themselves are very bright. I have found the following. Soldering to them is weird, using a 18w soldering iron, the solder would take a while to melt, then when it would melt and stick to the pad it would cool for a sec. I imagine this is because of th...

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:As noted in another review(s), it gives off a lot of light for it's size. I got it in October of 2010 but finally now got around to setting it up. I hope I was sent the right one. All the heat discussed in one or more other reviews is no longer a problem and I c...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:This 5W LED Emitter is better than I figured it would be. I have a tactical flashlight that had a 7 watt led on a star, it lasted less than a week ( think I put the batteries in backwards) (which I think was a Q5 being over driven with 7.2 vdc) I have to say i...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Good bright LED for DIY projects. -Bright -Allmost the brightness of 2 x Q5! -Good value Cons:Should come as bare LED. Because when you want to make a multiple LED flashlight you need to get the led of the star. I made a flashlight with 3 of these LEDS inside.... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Excellent item. Bought three, all work and they've almost left me blind. Cons:They're too warm. Even with thermal compound and a good aluminium disipation plate. I think maybe 50-60 Celcius degrees. OtherThoughts:I would like to see how long they last. I was dri... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:WOW this thing is BRIGHT. I have driven it up to 1A(~7W), and it rivals P7/MCE brightness at the same power levels. However, I don't know if it can handle 1A for extended periods. You can clearly see four dies beneath the phosphors. They're wired 2S2P, which is... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:It is brigth as a 15W fluorescent lamp, yes I have said 15W fluorescent lamp (~800 lumens) Actually i guess its is around 450 lumens but with a angle ~170 degrees , so you can buy it and replace your 15W fluorescent. The price is very cheap if you compare it to other leds... Read more
