    headlamp emitter

    yes backside of lamp. not much to it.. emitter mounted on the opposite side and a zoomable head with maginfier lens. is it a type of Cree? its sold as a cree. the square beam has a line seperating i/4 of the square and a small square corner of that square is missing. the photo is not very good.
