    Good LEDs for storage lighting

    posted by Plutohunden on 01/07/2013 Certified Owner

    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 ...
    Cons:
    The connecting pads could be at some more distance from the screw locations in order not to need insulated screws.

    Low-priced LED emitter with decent efficiency

    posted by Bonehead3 on 12/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Good quality on all the ones I've gotten(~10) -Quite powerful, don't look into it even without lens .. 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...
    Cons:
    -Unusual voltage(6.6V) makes it hard to get an acceptable level when you're hooking these up in series or parallel configuratio...

    Great Product, Insanly bright

    posted by steve000 on 05/20/2011 Certified Owner

    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...
    Cons:
    None. great product

    Very impressive!

    posted by uglyandbroke on 05/01/2011 Certified Owner

    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 an...
    Cons:
    DON'T LOOK RIGHT AT IT. IT IS A VERY CONCENTRATED BRIGHT LIGHT. It doesn't act in various major ways like the earlier reviews o...

    Awesome 5W LED Emitter on Star

    posted by bigbounderrv on 03/30/2011 Certified Owner

    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 ...
    Cons:
    When you apply voltage to this little baby, it gets hot right now, so make sure you mount it to a good heat sink with sink comp...

    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 ...

    Really good led

    posted by Mirkovich on 10/21/2010 Certified Owner

    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.

    Secret Edixeon 4-die love child? Watch out P7/MCE!

    posted by desolder on 08/07/2010 Certified Owner

    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, whic...
    Cons:
    Where's the darn datasheet??? It's obviously an Edixeon LED, but there's no mention of it on the Edison Opto web page. The tint...

    got me suprised

    posted by inatel on 07/11/2010 Certified Owner

    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 i...
    Cons:
    none
