As the largest producer of LEDs Cree goes further in the development and engineering of new products and technologies and introduces us at one stroke two new LEDs. XLamp® XP-E and XP-C LEDs have the smallest in the world footprints and still remain as reliable and efficient in performance as bigger LEDs. With its compact sizes XP-E and XP-C LEDs are ready to extend the possibilities for new-wave flashlight production. Due to its wide viewing angle and low profile these new high-performance LEDs can be sufficiently used in backlighting, signage, indoor and outdoor portable lighting.
And as minimum bins for XP-E are 100 lumens at 350mA in cool white and 80.6 in warm white we can now speak about a great leap forward in the flashlight industry and the development of highly bright and compact flashlights and headlamps.
