Really great work Match. I agree that the star is a likely bottleneck but entirely appropriate for these tests. I saw a nifty thermal image showing star vs reflow to copper. I also wonder if die size is a factor in the ability to tolerate overdrive.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

I got a preorder notice from Cutter a few weeks ago.

Thank you Match for this great tests, I always check you’re lumen readings when I want to make a new flashlight mod… Very useful.

Think twice, act fast!

Thanks for the compliments. 

  Also, don't forget to check out the real potential of these emitters when mounted directly to copper.  Test results here! (One of these days I'll get the direct to copper results of the xp-g, xr-e, and xp-e up there as well...)

Here's how I mounted it, and here is another successful way by Old-Lumens.
