It's a board – 3.15cm Aluminum Connection Board for 3*Cree LED Emitters (2-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
It holds 3.
Pads are electrically insulated from each other and the backing.
Cons:
The board's thermal pad doesn't spread out any further than the pad area. That's a shame because these boards do get drops in thermal resistance when the copper spreads the heat out over a wider area to get more heat through that electrical insulator layer.
The single Cree boards I have enough extra copper on top to just about double the area over just what's under the pad.
The pads are actually so close to the edge I'm not sure the devices won't hang off the edge.
Other:
Bottomline:
It holds 3. Thermal resistance may not be as good as it should be.
