So, after some delay, I finally got to mod the Skilhunt M150.
I took out the Cool White XP-L HD emitter and put a Luxeon V2 5000K bought a while ago from Led4Power.
You’ll see the difference below
BTW, I also measured the PCB. I was a bit disappointed, as I thought it was thicker. NO! Also, it didn’t have any kind of thermal paste below! Ok that this is not a hot rod, but still, it should have some. So, so besides replacing the LED, I also put some thermal paste!

Comparisons with Luxeon V 4000K (under a TIR, on the right)
Luxeon V2 5000K vs Luxeon V 4000K (with SMO reflector)
This is my first light with a Luxeon V2 5000K!
And I love it!
And it is so much better than a CW LED in this flashlight!
And if it is not completely perfect, it is much more pleasant than a XP-L HD CW emitter!
Skilhunt, if you are reading this, please consider offering this light with Neutral White emitter!!!
The lumens may be lower, but it will be much better and more pleasant!!!
Also, altough I am getting used to this UI, consider the suggestions given in the Poll you organized!
BTW, the mod is not difficult! You just need to reflow an LED on the PCB so that it works well and solder it again!
