http://www.lck-led.com/p853/Cree-XLamp-XM-L-Cool-White-LEDs-w/16mm-Board...@3A/product_info.html

Bought 4 for around 23usd delivered. Pretty fast too.

If you don't feel bad about use the coupon code CPFer 10% off. I did. Tried BLFer but got no luck. Ah well, let it be CPFer since i used to browse CFP occasionally.

They also carry the CM-L U2 but at 10usd. Your call, i was not interested.

Also osram leds at 1.5usd each, nomal and even warm white (150 or 120 lumens respectively)

 

Happy shopping.

Will this fit in an Akoray K-106, or does it need 14mm bases?

Just picked up 8 for my newest creation the LOPC - the Low Orbit Photon Cannon with 8 XML's surrounding a single SST-90 - all at 3A and 9A.  I'm using the thrower reflectors from Manafont and Kaidomain.  It's a few months off - the total cost is way out of the budget range I usually work in... but when I have something to show I'll post for sure.  Thanks again for the heads-up - Nutz

Is it not easier to build a few watt worth of laser probably liquid cooled to burn things around? Ah i see... you want a white laser blaster! Planning to do engravings on neighbouring house walls?

On a serious note one should feel the photons slap if fired in the face at 1m.

Just tried my new XM-L flashlight. Warms my face skin nicely at 20cm. o.O

I like that idea and it follows with the Star Wars - naming scheme - but in reality I'll be using 21V 5S LiPo 25C battery pack- somewhere in the 5 to 10K mah range.  The batt specs aren't 100% yet although I do have a completed casing/heatsink design.  Really this will be more searchlight than hand-held torch (flashlight)... but it will have the heatsinking for continuous duty at 100%... think 2" thick, 5.5" dia heatsink with 0.250" thick casing and active cooling.... reflector area (head) filled with a boron nitride / epoxy mix... and so on.... I'm building this for my brother - he's a police officer and this could come in handy when searching neighborhoods for suspects.... and of course it'll be blazing fun to build despite the $500+ price tag....

1 suspect incinerated the other was quicker than light to flee.

Was a white caucasian male?

Unsure...

I had ordered 3 XM-L T6s from there just yesterday. But didn't use a discount coupon, so again, I may need to buy more to balance the loss Smile
