    pic taken from another thread:

    here are the relative lumens @ 350mA
    P3 73.9-80.6
    P4 80.6-87.4
    Q2 87.4-93.9
    Q3 93.9-100.4
    Q4 100.4-107.0
    Q5 107.0-113.6

    at 1A it shouldn't be too much of a difference either since they are very close.
    remember the luxeon bins had about a 20lumen gap inbetween them and they were barely noticable.


    Luxeon
    T-bin 67.2 87.4
    U-bin 87.4 113.6


    here is a link to a review of the fenix LOD-CE Q2 and in it they compare relative brightness to their earlier review of the LOD-CE P4 and in this case the P4 version was just slightly brighter.

    i am no expert here, but changing from a P4 to a Q2 would only make sense if you wanted a different tint.

    EDIT: the review is in another language but if you scroll down you can see the numbers LOD-CE P4 being(787,742) and Q2 being (760,943)

    From P4 to Q2 is not at all night and day like some rave.
    Not sure the eye can even see this.

    P4 to Q5 is a decent jump though.


    As far as Wc and WG..are they also so close the eye can not tell the difference?
    Or is 1 quite blue and the other quite purple? ( example)
    What does the C and G denote..color wise?

    yeah P4 to Q5 seems to be a good bump in output and i really like the warm tint from the Q5's i've seen in some of the great beamshots posted here.

    I assume "warm" means more yellow then white?

    I believe WC is blue and WG is green. The C and G just happen to be what letter what used for that tint - see above chart. I also believe they are noticeably tinted, but I don't know how subtle that tint is. If I was someone with a weak preference for tint over lumens would I drive myself slowly crazy if I had a WG bin?
    No, a torch does not always mean flames.

    yeah, i use "warm" meaning more vanilla or yellow as opposed to "cool" meaning more blue.
