Awesome!

I’m waiting for the cool white though, I have two hard driven P60 drop-in’s sans LED’s just waiting for them. Silly

Thanks, just ordered 2 x nw, these should at least reignite some interest in my xm-l c8 upgrade build, also tossed some 380ma chips and two 3a drivers in there. 8)

I shouldn't have waited.  Oh well, it's not like I don't have too many projects on my plate as it is. Sad

Thanks again Weiser. Big Smile I wouldnt have found these in time without you.

Looking again at the specs, 5k color at 1045-1120 lumens @ 3A 25°C sounds fantastic for a neutral tint. I may stick one of these in an olight m20 warrior w smo reflector mod.

No prob, fellas Beer

I’m still a little surprised they went so quickly, even though there was only 16. Hank will almost certainly buy more for the next batch.

That’s funny how BLF probably bought his entire stock Big Smile

FYI - Mouser should have XM-L2 T6 5000k E3 (3A-3D range) around the first of February

and XM-L2 U2 5700k E2 (2A-2D range) around the first of March.

When you guys install these LEDs, PLEASE update us with PICS!!!! Steve

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile

It should be between 15 and 20% better: an XML (in U2 bin) can do 1000 lumen at 25°C and 10 watts while the XML-2 does just shy of 1200 lumen at the same temperature (and power). When the LEDs get hot (~80°C) the XM-L2 should still be putting out as much light as the XML does at 25°C (1000 lumen). Of course it will appear less then 10% brighter to the human eye so the real benefit comes from extra run-time by running at 8W instead of 10.

I have a couple of projects that will quite like that little boost.

I may even put off getting an mt-g2 for my edc+ host, when it eventually arrives if I like this enough. We’ll see. :bigsmile:

I do agree that hank probably sold his entire stock to blf, without even advertising….pretty slick.

I’m wondering what one of these will do at 3.7a J) might just make me like my m10 even more.

I actually spoke with Malkoff the other day about their Mag XM-L upgrade. And they’re apparently starting to make that available with the XM-L2.

Without lamps, there’d be no light.

I asked Hank when he is getting more of these in stock but he didin’t know, he only got this small batch from his supplier. I was too slow, would have put a t6 in my 7g5v2. I guess these will show up somewhere else eventually.

Sounds like I am grabbing one of these as soon as they are available again.  Should be perfect in my 1D Mag with ramping 4A driver.  Kicking myself for not grabbing one this morning.

Nice. I’ve always wanted to give the 2A/2D range a go. 5500k to 5700k is supposedly high noon sunlight.

I hope some don't think it's only 2A and 2D, E2 means any of 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D.

A couple of "2" tins have been sold at IOS, I got a couple. Don't get the impression they will more warm, I would say they are quite the best cool white, but still cool white.

Even these “neutrals” are going to be fairly cool, I would think, at only 3A to 3D. I don’t think it’s really all that neutral until you get to 4 or 5. My status went to “shipped” yesterday, so it should be on the way with a couple of 8×7135 3.04A drivers.
