Product Description

**Update** In stock and ready to ship!


The XT-E is the replacement technology for the CREE XP-G using Cree's new silicon carbide wafers. They deliver more flux using less power. These are the base LEDs used in aquarium lighting as the white light, adding in other colors to supplement if necessary. Now on a convenient solderless star!


This LED comes in several Kelvin rating:

  • Cool White - Great for planted tanks mixed 1:1 with warm white. Not recommended for reef tank.
  • Neutral White - Great for reef tanks, used with XT-E royal blue and XP-E2 blue in a 2:4:1 ratio.
  • Warm White - Great with planted tanks mixed 1:1 with cool white, and for tweaking certain non-fluorescent coral colors in reef tanks.


Please use 18-24AWG stranded or solid wire to easily insert into the solderless connector - make sure you strip the wire.  To remove the wire, use a need/staple and poke the hole above where the wire is inserted (we recommend Solid Wire 24awg (300 volt) - 25 feet - White)

  • Versatile and good value

    by Josh – 3rd Feb 2014

    These LEDs put out a very good amount of light for the price, and you can't beat the versatility of the solder-less connectors. They work as advertised and the solder-less connectors seem very mechanically sound. You will need a heatsink if you run them at anything close to full output, but that is standard for this kind of LEDs. Using some thermally conductive electrically isolating compound between the heatsink and LEDs is also a good idea. They compare quite favorably to the XT-M LEDs on a cost to light output ratio. I used 12 of them to make a drop in replacement system for a 4 foot 2x40 watt T12 fluorescent fixture. The amount of light coming from those 36 watts of LED is comparable or superior to the 80 watts of fluorescent light.
