Nice video! I’m actually happily surprised at how much light those 100W Ebay leds still put out, had expected less.
My test of a XP-G3 S5 3B comes pretty close to yours, at least the results are very similar, it looks like you managed to sink the heat just a bit better: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/47016

Nice video… Still, 6k lumens from a $2 eBay LED emitter is pretty impressive.


Keepin’ the “B” in BLF

It sounds like the XM LEDs won’t really be suitable for flashlight use. Pity…

Thanks Smile I’d say the small difference seen between our 2 tests could also be emitter lottery or variance in calibration.

Glad you like it. I was shocked myself. I was expecting about half that.

I usually figure about 50 lm/w for cheap LEDs of any size. Cool that those eBay 100w emitters actually surpassed that. Good to know that my rule of thumb is at least close, and not too optimistic compared to reality.
