    Bright and White

    posted by Albertosoto on 02/21/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    None at all.

    very concentrated light ouptut

    posted by Culverjoe on 10/01/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    a little to purple for me, but it's not that bad at all

    Nice product

    posted by pshrus on 09/08/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    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
    Cons:
    I got no problem with delivering. It took 2 weeks. For mine leds all will be ok with solder. I haven't noticed any disadvantage...

    Not Exactly What I Expected- BUT Very Bright

    posted by zippyzappy on 06/27/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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 ...
    Cons:
    Upon initial inspection of this high quality LED, I found that the soldering joint on one side was obviously over soldered. Aut...

    Perfect even for caving

    posted by int0x80 on 06/22/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    Current source driver is a must, as direct connection to batteries makes this LED very ineffective. Also, I don't like the colo...

    Pros:
    Bright replacement emitter for older LED lights. Nice tint.
