    mr11 drop in cree bulb???

    i am not talking about the cutter kits with the board and reflector but something like this:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/MR11-WHITE-CREE-...QQcmdZViewItem

    it does come in a 30 degree version but it has a really stupid bubble lens and it looks like it has no reflector

    there are lots of nice triple cree bulbs available in the mr16 size but I cant find anything in the mr11 size

    if anyone knows of something like this it would really be helpful

    Only 80 lumen.
    That's not a lot of light spread over 30deg. I'm not aware of any worthwhile MR-11 dropins right now.

    80 lumens is probably at the defualt 350ma
    i think you can drive cree leds at up to 1 amp
    but i am really not sure

    This is true, but those drop-in bulbs contain either a resistor to set drive current or a constant current regulator. You would have to disassemble the drop-in to adjust current. Also, the heatsinking of the assembly may not be adequate for operation @1A. I'd be interesting to see the internals on one of those. I think you should get one and try to mod it for more output, it would be a cool project! If you do, take lots of pics while the drop-in is apart!
