Sunglasses on – Cree XLamp MC-E K0-WG 370~700-Lumen LED Emitter on 20mm Star Board (MCE-WG-K0) Reviews

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

Pros:
Single chip so you need only one lens
Compact so it can replace XR-E
Massive white light output (4 times XR-E)
Comes on individual wired star that is thick so seems to be a good heatsink
Has very low Vf
Cons:
Stated and partially made parallel - some of the pins came soldered together
Only bin currently available
Other:
It would be much better to let the user decide die configuration so make it individual.
Much easier to solder pins together than to decouple them using desoldering wick
didn't try to direct drive it to 18650
temporarily mounted to a big heatsink
UI characteristic (one die)
