No big deal, just swapped the mcpcb's in a couple convoys in an attempt to make a couple throwers, one namely a 14500 cell thrower. I needed this little light for a varmit rifle and I needed more reach than the regular bulbs. So in both of these I swapped in an osram cslm1-tg and what I ended up with is actually pretty impressive like throwers.

Here's the t2 and the osram t2 compared
What's odd is it looks yellow. It's not and the hot spot isn't that defined in person. Hard to pick this up on camera.

Some distance. The regular t2 is showing more light on camera than I see in person and the osram is showing a little less. Which is odd. It's also barely lit outside and you can see the sky in the camera better than in person. Must be some light Gathering settings on my phone.

Looks like you could benefit from a centering gasket ring on the osram swap, that LED always seems to bw finnicky with centering. What PCB size did you use for the swap?
