    Exclamation Where to buy Cree XB-D ?!

    It seems Cree is moving faster to bring the new LEDs on the market. Here is the first list of sites where you can buy the new Cree XB-D:

    http://www.ledrise.com/leds/high-pow...ree-xb-d-2012/

    2.39€ for one, with free shipping for orders of 10€ or more. Expect to wait 2-3 weeks to receive your order.

    http://www.leds.de/High-Power-LEDs/C...e-Emitter.html

    2.99€ for one and shipping is not free but they move a little faster to deliver.

    In the rest i found only sites that sell 1000+, http://www.newark.com, http://components.arrow.com and so on...

    XB-D is meant to replace the XP-G.

    Main advantages: double lumen density, more lumen per dollar.

    Downside: slightly lower brightness in hot conditions. See here:

    Interesting, I didn't know it was going to replace the XP-G. It's noticeably smaller and has a lower max current rating.

    I got some from Digikey last week. They were only about $1.50 a piece.

    I forgot to mention the bin. I am talking about XBDAWT-00-0000-000000G51 which is the highest. Did a search on Digikey: " No records match your search criteria"

    Yeah, it looks like the R3 bin the highest one they currently stock.

    Digikey has them too in low and high quantities. From what I heard from my Cree rep. they said that it was to actually replace the XP-E HEW not necessarily the XP-G (although it could i guess). They said something like XP-G performance for less than XP-E pricing.

    Regardless, should be an interesting LED to watch as performance and technology increases.

    I just ordered a few from Cutter Electronics in Australia. Shipping to the US will make you **** bricks, but they do have R4 bins in stock mounted on 20mm stars.
    Also, the XB-D appears to be more a replacement for the XP-E, with the XT-E being an XP-G replacement.
