    If you turn them over, you'll see LEDs in those things. Five watt Luxeon Star LEDs, to be more specific. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    The part you're seeing are the hexagonal shaped heatsinks, viewed from the bottom.

    A good white 5 watter (U) is good...
    A V3? Great!
    A W3? Fantastic!!

    But a X3?!?

    Impossible!!![img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

    But there it is, starin us in the face.

    hotbeam, you do know that showing that to us is just plain torture right? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Needless to say, you probably have (or will) have plans for those babies...

    But on the off chance you end up with a spare, well... there's one more name you can add to an already long list [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Congratulations on your acquisition. Any idea of MTBF runtimes? Thanks.

    Mr B... It is a DSE (local manufacturer) model Q1400. This is the same meter that I used to measure the Arc LS, my SNII, 3AA, etc... Measures up to 50,000 lux.

    Shankus... An open Paypal... cool. Can I fill in the amount [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Lighthouse... This LS is from the same vintage as the other 5-watters you have seen, rated at 1000hrs.

    Howie, thanks. Is there a U.S. distributor? Reason is the ones here (with 5 digit readotus) are all getting up into the rather pricey range, the LM631 I bought was under a hundred bucks, but the next one up the scale at that time was around $500...!

    Mr B, my meter has a 4 digit range but can measure to 50000 lux. Lux figures for the X3T have been fixed up in the post above. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] I just went to the store's site (www.dse.com.au) and they have a nice and cheap one currently. It measures Lux and CP (candlepower)!!! Mine is different to that one. If you want me to get one for you, email me.

    So, do you think that 6 months from now, or a year, these X3T or similar 5 watters will be more available?

    I sure hope so!

    It is very difficult NOT to say "I WANT ONE OF THESE!"

    I see one of these in a McModule, or a 3 cell, M6 mod, Direct Drive Mr bulk McModule.

    Wow, I think I would be done buying lights for a while!!!

    NAAAAAA! There is always something else to buy!

    Well, if you find a source large enough, I am sure that you realise that you could sell them ALL here!
