Luxeon V LED - White 5 Watt

Replacement: None. There is no direct replacement for these. This page is for reference only.

The field proven technology of Luxeon LEDs comes to the SFE masses! This**5Watt LED (yes, 1A peak, 6.8V forward voltage) is bright. So bright, we’re afraid to hook one up. 4 times the lumen output of the standard 1Watt Luxeons.

Note: These went away but we have a few left in stock, get them while they’re here because once they’re gone, they’re gone for good.

Note: Philips has removed the datasheet for this, so unfortunately we don’t have one to offer.

  • Caution is in order when using these high power LEDs. The IEC puts them in the same class as lasers. The white ones are especially dangerous, as they actually generate a lot of ultraviolet light in addition to the white light. If you must look at them directly, be sure to wear ultraviolet protective goggles. The

    According to the spec sheet linked above, this LED produces “No UV”, though it is painfully bright.

  • LedSupply sells this LED chip with an integrated heatsink board (currently listing @ $26.99). However, they do have a copy of the datasheet: http://www.ledsupply.com/docs/Luxeon-StarVC.pdf

    Looks like this would work well with a 7.4v LiPo pack and a constant-current regulator for a custom portable lighting project…

    If this is the same part, then the spec is 6.84V @ 700ma.<br />
    Heatsink temperature should be keep < 35C to give more than 500 hours of operation without loss of brightness.<br />

  • This thing is crazy awsome! I hacked a small old flash light to fit one of these bad boys and a 9 volt battery. I ran the LED directly off of the 9 volt except for a switch of course. My new flashlight is absolutely amazing for camping. I really couldn’t believe how bright it was.
    But watch out, one of these things will give you light spots for an hour! I accidentaly blasted my self in the eyes with one and it felt like i got punched in the face it was so bright.

  • Does anyone know how many lumens this could put out
