Thanks for sharing the info!

hmmm Only “two wires” inside the led, powering the die??? the XML has 3 or I am wrong?

Does the die looks more “orange” than yellow? and no “lines” dividing the die¿¿

Dont know if this helps out but both datasheets show a viewing angle of 125.

which is the same, right?

so 20% more output will mean ?% higher surface brightness…and more throw

now, if they would just make red and green xml2s I’d be ecstatic

???

1200 lumens at 3A sounds like a lot to me!

and if you prefer, run at ~20% lower amperage and get longer runtime instead…

Wow, 2.85v forward voltage at 700mA. That’s pretty great!

Great link, thanks.

Nice! But a little bummed about all the current lights that I just paid for – some of which are still in the mail on the way to me – now being just a little bit outdated!

That settles it… I’m not going to buy a 3-D TV yet, I’m waiting for 4-D to come out! Wink —KarRacer31

I don’t know why I like flashlights so much… I must have been left in the dark for too long as a child! LOL

116 lumens-per-watt efficacy at 3 A, 25°C.

You gotta like that!

i read (very) quickly – and gathered 1. yay for overdriving (they’ll continue to come out with new LEDs faster than I’ll wear them out) 2. no pwm (ie constant current) is more efficient

That’s great news.

How long do you guys think it would take for the XM-L2 to be found in budget lights? Or even in fasttech.com?

Cheers!

We will see them in lights in approximately 1 to 52 weeks. The XP-E2 and XP-G2 haven’t been adopted that quickly, so it could potentially be a while. I don’t know if that is a supply thing or what. With so many XM-L lights out there, I would think there would be a real drive to adopt the XM-L2 quickly whereas the XP-E and XP-G aren’t used as widely anymore. The Cree datasheet lists all kinds of tints and brightnesses, but I can’t imagine all of those will be available that quickly.

XM-L has more cache than XP-G. I think the premium makes will rush to adopt the XM-L 2 because customers will be asking for it. I plan on holding off buying anymore lights until the XM-L 2 comes out. I have enough to hold me over for a while.

This sounds like a good quote for someone's signature line!  We'll hold you to it Speedsix!  Remember - NO MORE LIGHTS!  Smile

Without proper driving XML2 doesn’t mean anything.
p.s. does this means cheaper XM-L T6 and U2 Smile

With the 0.05 lower voltage requirement will a new series of drivers be needed or offered, or will the current ones work?
Also, whether it uses the current or new driver will it give slightly more full power output on the same battery?

The Journal of Alternative Facts TM

"It is critical that there is a credible academic source for the growing and important discipline of alternative facts. This field of study will just keep winning, and we knew that all the best people would want to be on board. There is a real risk in the world today that people might be getting their information about science from actual scientists"

The current drivers will works just fine since 0.05 volts is well under the ripple and noise of the Chinese drivers.

However, the higher voltage/current probably will be noticeably brighter under direct drive.
