XP-L HD 6A2 or 6A3 comparison

I have refitted several lights over the years with XP-L HD 5A2’s, but would really like to be just a tad warmer in the tint. I have had no luck finding either of these tint bins…. do they exist? Has anyone used either? I think I would really like the 6A2 as I have found them over the years in the old XM-L2 and really liked the tint.


EDC rotation:
KR4, SST-20 FA3 4000k (favorite!)
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (second favorite)
FW1A, LH351D 3500k (third favorite)
FW1A, XP-L Hi 3A
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k
Emisar D4V2, brass E21A 3500k (night light of choice)

At least when using Cree nomenclature, I’ve only ever seen 5s jump right to 7s, never any 6es.

Maybe if going by CT, eg, “3750K” or so, something might show?

I’ve looked, but not very hard.
