BLF LED Database - Collaboration Spreadsheet - Share latest news about where to buy LEDs

LINK: LED database – BLF collaboration spreadsheet

This is a public sheet that everyone can edit. Please dont mess it up. Ill try to have a backup. Would be nice if people who edited or added leds took backups once in a while in case someone mess it up.

Please contribute to this thread or spreadsheet if you find new emitters at a good price.
All talk about emitters, prices, etc are allowed here..

Do a calculated estimate on kelvin if the webpage does not specify one exact number, and they specify either tint or kelvin range (from-to). That makes it easier to sort LEDs in the kelvin column.

The “information sheet” have many links to webpages who sells emitters and accessories… Feel free to add or fix information there.

You can sort leds by price, bin, tint, star etc etc…
There are several sheets for several emitters.

Thanks Scaru. I also added the XR-E2 sheet (empty). And added sort features to both XR-E sheets.
Did some other cosmetic changes in all the sheets too..

There is no such thing as the XR-E2, you're thinking of the XP-E2. I will try to fill that in later today.

Here is the link for XM-L2 leds from Mauser.. They have XM-L2 S6 warm 90 CRI on order along with various other XM-L2s.
Bare emitters only.

Otherwise it would be the ones from led-tech listed in the spreadsheet.
Intl-outdoor had XM-L2 T2 2700K (E8) for a very limited run… (out of stock)

If anyone else know of more, let me know. Im very interested in warmer XM-L2s. Preferably on star and with low/free shipping.

Nice.. Short and simple description.
XP-Gs may be outdated.. But they are really cheap @ fasttech..
As much as I dislike Cool white. 2,17$ for one emitter when buying 5 is crazy!
And a 5 pack of TIR optics for them for 1,81$.

Needless to say.. I bought some a couple of days ago. All of them will go into one light.

I was considering making a triple emitter light. I was just browsing some sites hoping to find some warmer XP-Gs at a decent price. Then I saw the price @ fasttech and though.. F%¤ it.. 5 emitter CW light it is! Big Smile

The nice thing with fasttech is that the discount for 3 or 5 emitters is quite nice.

Great work guys, thanks!

Do you think it’ll be a better idea to hyperlink the websites to the products’ actual page?

Hyperlink?
How to do it?
Could you do it with some of the links on the “XM-L” sheet?

Added MK-R category and one source so far.

Edit:
*May I suggest we change the “Free Shipping” cell header to simply “Shipping?” It adds zero hierarchical complexity but allows for more accurate description (for example, “Free/No
/$/$$/$$$”* -*in place of “Yes/No”).*
Actually that doesn’t work due to different rates for international members. So scratch that idea!

Thanks for your efforts.

Should we add some less reputable vendors such as DX, DD, and KD?

Ok, they are all now hyperlinked. From now on if people could hyperlink them when inserting that would be appreciated. Here the format is.

It looks better now.. I only got to take a few before before u were done scaru.
Funny though.. If you watch the first picture (OP). I only wrote the name. Then you added links, so I though.. yeah that is probably better even if it did not look as good in my eyes. So I changed mine into links too. Silly
But now its the best of both worlds.. Smile

My thoughts:
yes, but only if they have have something others does not have.
When I uploaded the sheet I had added 1x XM-L from DX. It was mounted on cooper star. So quite unique. I think this database should show people what is out there. They can check out other threads about the vendors if they want to choose one vendor over another based on how they are rated by customers. I believe someone have noticed the cooper XM-L I linked to because it it now out of stock! Silly (it was not when I added it. Might be a coincident though).

I added some XM-L2s from lightmalls/kaidomain. So far only source for XM-L2 U2 on stars with free shipping (lets hope the bin is U2). Do i personally recommend them over some others stores? Do I trust the bin/tint info as much as some other stores. No. But this thread is a database.
It is nice to have options if some place is out of stock. Up until now, every store that have gotten XM-L2s in stock have been sold out right away. Especially the more popular bins/tints.

I see that Relic38 found a nice source for XP-G2 on 16mm star. (4$ with shipping)
I added NW white version too (5$).

Not sure about BIN. I see there is a part of picture that says R5. But they have used same background for both emitters.
Description does not specify BIN..
