XHP90.2 LED bead replacement
« on: June 19, 2020, 02:24:26 AM »
I have a light with this XHP90.2 bead and 3 of the 4 LEDs are dead. Only one lights.
Where can I get a replacement bead?

thanks

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but you've been had by cheap chinese torch marketing. Cree doesn't make an XHP90/90.2 LED.  Your emitter died because it is a fake and of low quality.   If you want to bother replacing the dead LED,  go with a genuine Cree XHP 70.2.   If you are in the US you can get it quickly at mtnelectronics.com.

Yeah, I thought I found an XHP90 on a Cree datasheet b4 I bought this, but now I can't. Maybe it was just one of my dreams.
And of course, I can't find one on Aliexpress either. The vendor was suppose to send me a new one, but sent a driver instead. I got a refund from Ali so all is not lost.
