    New Cree XQ-E High Intensity
    I have been looking for a new 10mm led / optic solution. The search is nearly over.

    Cree XQ-E High Intensity

    Only one problem, I still can not even find a 10mm pcb for them anywhere much less one already mounted on a 10mm pcb.

    These are really small only 1.6mm x 1.6mm
    The cree XQ-E is better than an xp-e2 in every way. More lumens per watt. The cree product comparison tool on website shows the xq-e does quite well at 1A.

    Better still is the data sheet for optics. Ledil has 10mm round or 10mm square optics for the xq-e high intensity and it shows them at 11 degrees which is also better than an xp-e2.

    These are also inexpensive leds and come in a wide variety of tints and also in color. Another plus

    Maybe it's time to dust off my microlight design for another go.

    Beg Cutter's to get going on MCPCB's to suit!

    in looking at them, may get more throw, but 100 less lumens at 1A vs XP-G2 and just a little over half that of XP-L HI @1A. And vF of these is a fair bit higher. Of course your spot will be larger but by the time you put enough of these together to put out enough light (4-5 to get 1k lumens after losses), a single xp-l or xm-l2 with 21mm optic does the same thing with less power requirements.

    Osram Oslon SS 80 might be better
    The Osram Oslon SS 80 might be better, because of the viewing angle of only 80 - meaning tighter spot - smaller optics for better throw. These are 2 mm diameter and about 300 lumen at 1A.

    Just started building with one of those.

    Edit: Just checked the ledl homepage, the small optics are 11 degrees for the XQ-E and 16 degrees for the ssl 80 - so XQ-E might be even better. You even get small elliptical optics, I like these best for the bike!

    Yes that is exactly it that PCB will fit the little 10mm carclo optics great. I just had a look at cutter website and see the xq-e high intensity is there but in red. Same thing in 3500-4500 k and I will be ordering. Guessing that is coming soon.

    yes I have some stock en route of the whites, hopefully before Xmas
