XHP50 Output test by Texas_Ace. Not bad results, can't wait to see the new XHP50.2

Here is yet another installment of LED Tests by Texas.

This one is sponsored by CRX, thanks for the donation!

This is an XHP50 J4 1A LED test. Same test procedure as all the other tests.

Another tough little LED, Good output and it fits in the standard XM-L footprint.

I did this test mostly as a benchmark for the upcoming XHP50.2, can’t wait to see what that does.

After the test I installed it in a supfire L3? The supfire convoy L2. I have some old numbers on this light when it had an XHP70 in it and interestingly the XHP50 got twice the throw and a bit over half the lumens.

I can also say that slicing the dome is not really worth it, throw only increased by about 10-13%. It dropped about 15% lumens as well. the spot is a lot smaller but also more “jagged”. In an OP reflector it might do better. In this reflector I preferred it with the dome on.

Hi guys or gals, great work here Mr. T.A. thank you I was looking for exactly this info, really appreciate the amount of work you do..
You are aware that RMM has just got the 50.2’s.. ? They are up and mounted on some great sizes of mcpcb’s. but are moving out fairly quickly,
Mt. XHP50.2 Perhaps a total of 15 assorted remain if my recollection is correct.
Richard gave this LED a try in a no mod at all C8 and said this new 50.2 is spectacular or similar words, looks like the smooth issues are over or so it sounds.
New release of the XHP70.2’s is now underway and are shipping per Cree’s email the other day,
Thanks again

I was not aware he had some in stock, thanks for the heads up. I still want to try the 50.2’s badly myself.

Yes Sir, your quit welcome, had an idea you weren’t aware, it has been just very recently, last day or two, really looking forward to the new 70.2 and talking with RMM and reading the Data sheet I fully expect all the previous issues ie: doughnut hole, are now a think of the past, so darn glad now I stopped messing with that smo L6 reflector and just shelved it, it’s back in play now for sure.
