They finally have an ETA on the 5000K XP-P LEDs as well: 2021-09-24… two more months.
I had been fairly optimistic about this LED, having a < 6500K thrower LED finally (and a ubiquitous 3535 footprint to boot). But JaredM has shown some discouragingly high vF values compared to the Osrams.
JaredM's data is higher Vf that the CREE spec shows, but the spec is still fairly high. Basically this is a 4 amp max LED, maybe on an absolute fresh cell, or by boost. The throw #'s look decent though.
we have had the XPP in 5k in stock for a month now?
Hey Mark, that’s cool, I’m glad you’ve got some. Unfortunately I can’t justify the $20ish shipping fee for just a few LEDs to play with. I understand international shipping is costly, so I’m not complaining. I’ll just wait patiently for them to arrive stateside.
