I don't think the mule would be bright enough, unless you are cooking in low light. I have used a mule at a campfire cookout, and the wide beam worked great for illuminating the food table! Plus with a High CRI LED, all the food looks good enough to eat!:)

ive been on the fence over the sundrop for a very long time. my use will be primarily for outdoor cooking. what made you go with the sundrop over the mule?

No question on this one. Go for a Sundrop XRU with a Nichia LED and Hive. Provides the most useable light for general tasks like cooking.

I'll be interested to hear your thoughts after you get it, AWTYD ....

I have had both, and find them rather different.

The N119 is my favorite, however :)

Just ordered a SunDrop XR-U with the 119V High CRI. Per Don, it's much brighter and has better color rendition that the 083's.

Any chance for a photo of the beam output ? I'm curious how the 119V led plays with the XR-U lens. I do miss my XR-U with the 083.:wave:

So it basically makes it look like a narrow TIR optic or Zoomed out aspheric then?

Or if your familiar with the old LiteFlux LF3XT beam with its deep reflector.

Found it! No idea why it ended up where it did, it certainly wasn't a case of "let me put it somewhere safe", more likely I just needed to get it out of the way real quick and then I forgot about it, but I definitely put it there intentionally because there's no way it could've fallen neatly into the spot I found it.

Sundroppers... pardon the noob question: what is your favored/preferred battery type for the XR-U? primaries or rechargeables? :sssh:
