    Default Lupine Wilma XML U2 led upgrade

    Hi
    There is a guy here in the forums who did crazy things with the well known Lupine Betty.
    He swap the emitters and put XML U2 bins inside so the output went crazy.
    I asked him if he can do something similar for the Wilma users.
    He said to me that he wants about 20 people to make this thing happened.
    So here we can post if we are interesting for such an upgrade.
    Until now we are 2 already interested.

    ps to the mods (if this thread its against the rules of this forum please lock)
    Flashy way of life...

    just by changing the led to newer versions, the output will "only" increase by that theoretical better efficiency of the new ones.

    If the original setup used Lux III - whats inside the Betty? - then there will be a visible difference,
    but if they already had XP-Gs inside, the only thing to notice were a wider beam
    (with less bright looking main because of the wider beam)

    the only way an XM-L really makes a difference is, when its main "positive" - being able to stand 4 times the current to an XP-G - is used.
    Did the upgrade include raising the current to the led?
