As I'm quite the fan of LED torches and illumination in general. I thought I'd see how cheap and easy my X-Eng X-Lites could be upgraded to LED. Attempt 1: Found these claimed 6w quad MR16 LED bulbs on ebay. It looks a bit bigger than the 50w halogen. But fitted the X-Lite housing a treat. The LED can be had in a 'cool' 6000k or 'warm' 3000k tint. This is the 6000k variant. On first look it appears to be working fine. But as soon as night fell it was clear to see that the LED output was very sub par to the halogen... Led: Halogen: Back to the drawing board it seems... I have a claimed 9w and 12w MR16 bulbs on the way to try, although I think the 12w will be physically too long for the X-Lite. If none of these direct replacement LED bulbs can match or exceed the halogen, then a custom build might be the only way. Attempt 2: pending....
