R2 Cree LED picture anyone?
« on: September 17, 2008, 03:25:21 AM »
I'm very confused.

I bought an "R2 Cree" Solarforce drop in, 2 ebay sites including the site i bought it from all show (and obviously the one i ordered myself which came today) say R2 AI bleah bleah on the drop in, but the LED itself looks like a Q5 same size, same whiteish background..

now the R2 i bought from DX had the yellowish background looks identical to the cree P4, same size and i came across 1 other site which also agreed which also had the yellow background identical to a P4.

So does the R2 resemble the P4 or the Q5, i'm very confused.  :'(

You see what i mean...

The pictures you posted, two of your R2's are different, one looks more like a P4 the other looks like a Q5, so which really is an R2 they can't all be R2's :P

I only posted one picture...

Everything else is smoke and mirrors.

ok my mistake you posted only 1 picture.

but look at the pictures other people posted, you'll see that not all the Cree R2's look the same some look like the P4, my only question is really, is the R2 more closely releated to the Q5 (white/small) or the P4 (Larger/Yellowish)....

Trying to determine which one of my R2's (one's yellow one's smaller like the Q5) is fake.

Anything that does not look like the one in my picture is a blatant fake. :yawn:

fully phosphor coated emitters are from the US factory. Partially coated ones are Asian made. Both are real, both are legit, both qualify as R2 by the required luminous flux.
