Bright Q5 Cree, Whiter than P4 – Cree XR-E Q5 Emitter on Premium Star (228LM at 1A) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Fairly easy sauter points, on black star yet quality built. The mod on my DX Led digital torch was easy took 3 minutes. This Q5 looked noticeably whiter and more concentrated center. While ceiling hunting it revealed a small yellow corona and less spill beam.
Cons:
I expected it really much brighter might just be my mAh board though need to test that. Might be running less than 600mAh
Other:
Great that this is available for purchase. My co-workers already jumped on the Cree bandwagon. They bought the same Cree torch as mine. I still want to outshine them.
Bottomline:
Great mod, fairly easy, good price, buying one or two wont hurt to keep up with the new tech. Great for CR123A torch and the 3D one
