I doubt the specs - there is a very low probability that it really is an M bin in warm white and 800 lumens seems rather less than plausible. However, it does look interesting.

 

It looks like it might be a P60 light - or it might not. Not a bad price for a probably pretty bright warm white emitter. The body appeal to me too.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

Its the same body as the Ultrafire/Suterfire G2 and indeed a p60 host. Smile

Very nice looking and I like that warm beam color. But I own way too much p60 hosts.

There's usually a big hit in brightness to get a tint that warm, so I don't see how it could be M. Quark's cool white XP-G lights are R5, neutral is R4, and warm whites are only Q5. It's rare the budget dealers offer something in neutral, let alone warm.

Having had a look at the Cree website - if it is what Cree call a warm white, the highest bin offered is an H bin.

http://www.cree.com/products/pdf/XLampMCE_BL.pdf

However, DX say 4500-5500K which is what Cree calls neutral which are available in J and K bins. Cree only give output at 350mA per die, not the 700 it can handle. From the output curves here, it ought to give 75% more at 700mA giving a bare emitter output at 2.8A (4 dies) of 370*1.75=650lm for a J bin and 750lm for a K bin. It would be 850 for an M bin of which 600 might get out the front if Cree made an M bin neutral white - which they didn't as of the current MC-E datasheet which is dated 2010 but no month.
