DX AAA7 "XP-E R2"

Mini review of DX's AAA7 XP-E R2.

The emitter is in fact a XP-C which is clearly seen on DX pictures and is of unknow bin. The body has a nice finish and look like a mini AA-S1 (same color and good feel). The markings are "DX" at the front and "XPE-R2" at the middle.

The output with NiMH is low, 20 LM at 0.63A. I think it needs a 10440 to really perform, but I have none of those.

The hotspot is normal size, but uneven and there are many rings. I suspect the LED sits a little low in the smooth reflector.

The color temperature measured rather warm, 5700K, bin WD, off-neutral value 4 (almost neutral to the green side).

It does not tailstand.

Rating 3 out of  5 stars.

Sorry edc, but the one I received on dec.4-2010 really is an XP-C as in the picture.

It was kind of wishfull thinking. I wish they would get their specs right. I suppose they hope people won't notice.
