    Source for SSC P4?

    I am looking for a vendor in the US from which I could purchase a couple neutral or warm tint P4s. Using the sticky at the top of this forum, I found what I was looking for at led-tech.de. But, unsurprisingly, international shipping from Germany is expensive. Therefore, it would cost me nearly $30 to order two P4s. I am posting with the hope that members can point me towards a cheaper source of neutral/warm P4s. I'm also considering trying the high CRI P4, if anyone knows where I could buy a couple.

    If anyone is wondering why I would choose an outdated emitter like the P4 over something like an XP-G: I have a Dinotte 400L, and I'd like to swap out the blue P4s for an LED with a better tint. I plan to stick with the P4 because I will not have to change the optics, and it appears quite simple to solder in a new P4 in place of the old one.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Digikey show several that may work for you.

    897-1004-6-ND or 897-1024-1-ND

    Almost $10 ea plus shipping seems pretty high though still.

    Al, I know you said in the US but if you are not in a rush then DX has them with free shipping. I have a few lights with SWO tint P4's and it isn't blue like the Dinotte, just pure white.

    SSC P4 warm white - DealExtreme Could take a couple of weeks shipping.

    Thanks for the specific item codes. I did a search on Digikey for "ssc p4" and was a little overwhelmed with the results. The price is still a bit much as you mentioned, so I might explore other options. I'll certainly keep those in mind, though.

    My US interest was based purely on perceived shipping costs, and I'm not in any rush. I didn't realize the SWO tint was different, so thanks for pointing that out. I'll likely go with these if I'm unable to find a decent price on other tints as well. Even if I end up not liking them, I'm not taking much of a loss at $8 a pair.
