who is buying me a XP-E2 Torch led? Update: DBCstm did, test is in post#81

It is an extremely cool white XP-E2 (10500K !) which is supposed to be able to run at XP-G2 currents. We do that all the time of course, but what will be its limit? And does it dedome nicely? Smile It is out for a month now and now available, only at Mouser it seems. I can not buy there without paying 25 dollars shipping, so who is doing a Mouser order anyway and cares to include six of these for me and send them to me, simply in a plain envelope (I will pay for the leds, envelope and stamp). I'm quite interested in testing these out Smile . EDIT: DBCstm send me a couple, I tested one in post #81

This is the best bin Mouser sells now (sorry for the dutch link, can't seem to get to the english site from here)):

Here's a brief discussion of the led at CPF:

There is also a XQ-E 'Torch' version, but that one looks less promising to me.

Too bad I ordered my Osram IR three days ago Silly

But I agree - expensive shipping!

I believe user Buwuve offered to order things from mouser for other Germans here , he seems to place orders every few weeks. Maybe he would extend the offer to NL?

MY last Mouser order will arrive tomorrow Sad

But I would be interested in about 10 of these.
We’d need a Order of 40 to get free shipping – If we get enough i would be willing to do the order and forward the leds to you. (from Austria)

30 to go

Interesting LED. The problem is going to be the FV of 3.6 at 1.5a per the graph and 3.9 at 1.5a per the table.

Three tomatoes are walking down the street- a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato. Baby tomato starts lagging behind. Poppa tomato gets angry, goes over to the baby tomato, and smooches him… and says, Catch up.

I have seen so many factory specs (Cree, Nichia, Ledengin) being wrong about the voltage that until I tested it myself there's not much to say about that. Thusfar I assume that the voltage is no different from the standard XP-E2.

I don’t doubt that. According to the specs this is definitely a multicell LED. Curious what it tests out at.

Extremely cool white? 10500K? Why would you want that? Seriously, what kinds of applications would it be useful for? Bug zapper?

I want it for sheer output of course Cool  This is not about shedding some cosy light on the flowers you gave to your missus, this is about spotting bad stuff (please fill in your personal fear) from far away Wink .

BTW, I'm quite curious what tint is leftover when this one is dedomed, I fear for the worst Undecided.

I can order them from Mouser tonight and should have them in hand by Saturday.

Looks like 30 are spoken for, shall I order 50 to meet the price break? I don’t know how many I’ll try out, but will certainly try a few. Wink

50?  Nobody's even tested one yet.  Are you off (or on) your meds again?  Tongue Out

So we stand at 34pcs for the Europeans.

Dale ordered 50 – Will you send to the Europeans?
I’m not sure if this makes sense with letter costs from the US and shipping times?

I’d be willing to go ahead at 34, will fill the order to free shipping with some other parts. But I’d like to wait on Dale’s reply since he allready ordered.

LOL, since yesterday the Mouser stock for the best bin XP-E2 Torch went down from 1000 to 790. The other bins stock is still 1000 each.

So yeah, y’all better make sure they’re all accounted for! Silly

There was a pretty quick interest in 30 of em. If I’m keeping 10 then it’s easy to see why I got 50 for the price break. This allowed me to get em for $1.71 ea. That will help a little to offset some costs to the European modders. Wink

I too was wondering how 4 of these would do in a quad, de-domed….

From the Datasheet:

Quote:

The XLamp® XP-E2 Torch LED
provides lumen output similar to the
XLamp XP-G LED but in the smaller
optical source of the XP-E2 LED.
Together with a higher maximum
current rating than XP‑E2 and
simplified color binning, the XLamp
XP-E2 Torch LED is fully optimized
for a wide range of mainstream
portable lighting applications.
So, same output but tighter spot than XP-G2! All you’s guys with yore XP-G2 “lasers” will have to upgrade now!
