Thanks for asking chouster, it’s ok. Hasn’t bothered me at all today so I reckon I got lucky. Beats the heck out of a metal shaving, for sure. Wink

About to head out in a little while and get new beam shots of the M43, with the ND filter turned off. Wink Perhaps a comparative shot from the BTU Shocker with 3 of the 9V MT-G2 emitters? It puts out around 10,000 lumens.

I’ll get all the cells for both charged up so it’s a reliably fair comparison. Smile And yes, I’ll take the lens cover off…

Really looking forward to those beamshots. About that ND-filter, is that something you forgot recently? I guess the cam you’re using has a ND-filter built in…

I’m considering building a X6 3up XP-L HI once they become available over here. Should make a decent beam, right?

Yes, and yes. Last night I shot a sunset with the G1X and was trying some different settings for different effects. I turned on the 3 stop ND filter and forgot to turn it off. So the beam shots I took last night of the Meteor were 3 stops underexposed as compared to my usual settings…the settings were all the same, but the filter effectively put dark sunglasses over the lens.

Yes, these emitters should make a very nice X6 triple or quad. The CUTE-4 optics from Ledil, polished to a clear surface finish, should do exceptional with these in the X6. Wink

Anybody test the throw on these yet? My D01 with a de-domed XPL V5 1A used to do 301,000cd, so I re-flowed a XPL HI 5700K on to the same star and only manage to get 279,000cd. But that’s o.k. with me, because as I tested the de-domed V5 for the last time, a piece of crap fell onto the emitter, started smoking, and scorched a nice black spot into it? Go figure? Well that will not happen with these H1’s, NOT any more!! No more chipping the phosphorus off from misplaced centering rings or reflectors that pop up and land on the emitter surface or stuff that magically appears and lands on it!!!! I’ll gladly give up a bit of throw for a lot less frigging head aches and a way better tint!!!! I wonder if these can take 7+ amps? 8)

Wait, what’s this? Dedome option for $8.00? Seriously?

I’m sure it’s just an error. Copied over from the normal triple XP-L. Just pm RMM to let him know.

Wow. I didn’t know RMM had those in stock. I guess I missed the boat on XP-L HI mounted on 16mm and 20mm Noctigon. :_(

Er, does the tint bin work differently on these? Instead of a bin, it simply lists “5000K”.

Don’t know if this would be useful:

I think he got “E3”, that means it could be every 3ish tint, 3A, 3B, 3C or 3D. So 5000K desribes it pretty accurate.

WooWoo! My XP-L HI order has just shipped from Mtn. this afternoon! I'm looking forward to getting these in...

@Mr. Nobody: just buy the triple from Mtn once they are back in stock; you know you will want more than one, and that way, you get three, then you can just reflow onto whatever size PCBs you want.

I've got a couple of projects I'm working on with these; one of the triple boards is going into a DD-FET S2; I'm using the additional board to salvage emiters. One to replace the XM-L in my STL-V2 style thrower, another (hopefully) for a future UltraFire 1504 build, and the extra as a spare in case the unthinkable happens... Sealed

100 kcd+ I'd think. 100 kcd is what I got on a dedomed XM-L2 U2 in a good C8 running bout 4A.

Stock C'8 do bout 25 kcd, good modded C8's do bout 50 kcd (domed XM-L2, 4A or so).

KD has the HI V2 0B here: http://www.kaidomain.com/product/details.S024235, but seems quite pricy at $8.59.

0B is not 6500K, it is around 8000K, give or take some looking at the XP-L datasheets (binning)

Do you mean XP-L HI datasheets, not XP-L? Looks like bin and temp ratings drop with the factory de-doming.

Binning and labeling for XP LEDs datasheet. 0B is a bin, so all LEDs that fit those X and Y coordinates for what is called 0B are label as such.
