What company makes the XM-L Series LED?

Cree XLamp XM-L LED Star.

How do I identify a Cree LED?

It’s simple to recognize if your LED lights are using Cree LED chips or not. Cree’s cathode design incorporates a square with parallel lines dividing the surrounded area into equal rectangles. This creates a negative “plane” instead of a point but is also very helpful in identifying the model of LED.

Which is better Cree or COB LED?

Cree LEDs produce a fair amount of heat for a single chip but can disperse that heat easily. COB LEDs produce a similar amount of heat but as a harder time dispersing that heat. That means Cree LEDs may have a longer lifespan than COB LEDs depending on how much use they get.

Are Cree LEDs the best?

CREE – The best of the very best, CREE LEDs are like the Apple in the world of LEDs, or we like to think of it that way anyway. CREE’s are super high-performing, energy-efficient LEDs which provide a crisp, but low-glare output.

What are the lumens of Cree XLamp XP-G led?

Optimized for high lumen directional lighting applications, the XLamp ® XP-G LED set a new standard for light output and efficacy in a small-form-factor LED. The XLamp XP-G LED is capable of delivering up to 493 lumens at 93 lumens per watt when driven at 1.5 A. Others have tried to match its performance but no one has come close.

What’s the difference between Cree G2 and XM-L LEDs?

This line also offers throwing capability much closer to that of the older XR-E. Note that the size of the ‘G2’ is a tad smaller, producing a slightly smaller beam. Virtually all flashlights made today use an XM-L LED. This LED produces a full-flood beam, with less throw than the XP-G. Total lumen output for the original XM-L peaked at near 700.

What are the names of the Cree LED lights?

Here a basic roll call of the XLamp LED models that CREE has introduced over the last decade or so. Basically in order of consumer appearance, are XR-E, XP-E, XP-G, XM-L. These are the LED models, so to speak. Each model, however, has several luminous flux bins.

When did the Cree xp-g2 come out?

Press realease, datasheet. Introduced in July 2012, the XP-G2 is an all new design with the same size as the earlier XP-G. In August 2012, Foursevens was the first company to adopt this LED, claiming up to 20% more output and a 5% smaller hotspot for greater throw compared to the same models using a XP-G.
