The XM-L2 is the successor to the XM-L, which was Cree's single brightest LED diode. The XM-L2 gets a binning bump and hot binning (85°C), which increases flux over the XM-L by nearly 10% at the same current. It can be used directly in place of the XT-E white, but keep in mind that since they emit more light, the light will be much whiter in appearance since the XM-L2 is around 20% more efficient.
We only stock the highest bin codes for the XM-L2, so you're always getting the most for your money.
There are 2 review(s) for Solderless CREE XM-L2 White
by cameron – 24th Mar 2014
These were remarkably brighter than I had imagined. 1 Neutral white to 4 royal blues is still too white for my taste. I was going to buy 2. Very glad I didn't (12 gallon nano tank) as I would need a lot more rb. Awesome bright flawless product. At 1 amp these are bright. At 3, well let's just say you need sun glasses to look at the tank. Defintely would recommend this and I now understand the cost. Worth every penny!

These are totally worth the extra money. I was able to install a whole string with ballasts in a half hour. I had never seen them solderless before here. No worry of shorting bulbs (I blew a whole string of xpgs the other day worth 50$). I have another tank next to this one with XML series one and these are way brighter.
