    Finally! Very tempting. I'd prefer if I could just get the bare head, no light engine, because I already have an LE from my SunDrop to put into it.

    I did state above:

    If you want the titanium mule head empty with no LE the price is $110 plus postage.
    I realize it would help if all this was in the first post but I had hoped to at least start this out simple....

    Ah now if only I had bought the standard Haiku XPG not the warm version then I could have had an excuse to get one of these!

    I have been reading and rereading all things McGizmo trying to figure out what would be the most useful to me of his many wonderful offerings.

    I can't find it now, but I thought I read somewhere that the XP-G warm doesn't have that great of color rendition...quite on par with or even slightly worse than the XP-G R5. Someone correct me here!?

    I think you can safely justify the need for this High CRI light in either or both configurations. It's a McGizmo...you need it.

    It would be easy to move on 2nd hand if you found it redundant in your collection.

    That's simply personal opinion presented as fact. I believe it to be just the opposite. My favorite XP-G at present is either the 5x or 7x tint bin, which just happen to be R4. R4 has nothing to do with tint but there can be a form of correlation due the the fact that the warmer bins are never available in the brightest bin.

    If you see R5 or S2 then you know it's cool tint, whereas anything lower could be either warm, neutral or cool.

    My understanding is that most warm-tinted LEDs neglect the green part of the spectrum pretty badly compared to cool-tinted LEDs. My eyes back this up, because warm-tinted LEDs make foliage look dead and dry to me. However, the SSC P4 Hi-CRI I put in one of my Haikus is quite warm but renders foliage very well. So if you want a neutral or warm LED, Hi-CRI is definitely the way to go.

    Also, order placed (and acknowledged) for an empty Ti Mule head. I look forward to its arrival.

    Okay, all - just a few quick photos. The High CRI mule is outstanding - it has secured a place in my collection for sure!! For photographing small objects within a reasonable distance it will be great - and for pocket carry around the house to provide nice, even lighting, it will excel. I hope that this weekend I can expand on this post, but for now here are a few shots to hopefully show some of the qualities of this new light:

    Here it is being compared to a Sundrop XRU - no clip on the Sundrop, I typically don't carry it but use it around the house - mostly to help me find clothing in the unlit closet...



    Sundrop left - Mule right (you knew that.)


    The next three shots are with the camera on manual - tried to give you photos that would show you the beam shape, tint and relative brightness. They are projecting onto white poster board:







    These photos will be replaced this weekend! I took the first photo with a bounce flash to try to represent the colors - frankly, the photo shows the colors as more deep and rich than they really are. Easy for me to say and harder for me to prove, but honestly, the tint shown from the mule is really the closest to actual. Hopefully I can photo some outside fall colors daylight then with the lights this weekend.



    Sundrop XRU




    I think a great deal of the allure of this light to me, at least, is the rock solid feel and appearance. That mule head on the McClicky is the perfect length...clip it on your pocket and belt and scarcely know it is there. Remove the clip, drop it in your pocket and you barely know it's there. Yes, it has the solidity of titanium, but is is nice and small. And then there's the beautiful beam...

    I like it enough that my guess is that there is a Haiku high CRI in my future! Another winner from the master!

    I wish I could have seen these exact shots before I got my Sundrop. They show me that this version of the Mule is what I was after at the time. Great little write-up and pics.

    So, this Hi-Cri Mule can not take RCR123(3.7) , right ?

    There is red dot inside the L.E .. this means 3.0 V L.E, as far as I know.

    I think the red dot designation as "primary only" was for the LS20. I'm 99% sure you can use rechargeable batteries in the new Ti High CRI mule. I am!! No problems!
