This lamp was the bees knees when I bought it on eBay coupla years ago, but the dual and multiple LED lamps in Neutral White that have come out since then kinda knocked it off my bars. Finally got around to upgrading the original Cool White XM-L with an XM-L2 T5 5B1 from FastTech, makes a nice improvement. Original emitter was VERY blue, the T5 is comparitively colorless or ever so slightly warm. But the brighter LED seemed to make the lamp even MORE spotty, almost to a point. Swapping in an Wide Angle [elliptical diffusing] lens simply drew it out into a horizontal line, much too short a beam to be of any practical value. So added in another diffuser at 90º, aligned them in diamond back to back, and now have a generous little spot ideal for climbing.
