Quad Cree Gen3 12w LED
Our Gen3 12w+ LED is a Quad Cree utilizing four Cree XQ-E LEDs mounted centrally to a 2.5mm thick copper MCPCB.
The Gen3 has been redesigned with thicker copper and now is pre resistored with SMD surface mount resistors dramatically reducing the space required inside a hilt by eliminating large inefficient through hole resistors. Coupled with our larger all copper heat sink and brighter bin code LEDs we are seeing brightness increases of 15-20% compared to our previous Gen2 LED.
When you select a color you will get an LED that is pre resistored for a standard 18650 battery. Just wire up the leads and go!
The Cree XQ-E has the highest lumen efficiency in the industry and we only carry the brightest bin codes they make.
