Not all LED Chips Are Created Equal
Don't be fooled
How can you tell!
First, understanding that all LED chips manufactured are sorted into Bins after manufacturing.
- low bins for the poorest light output and
- high bins for the highest light output.
Only the best LED's from the highest level Bins at Cree are used in the ARROW and new 3 watt Omni LED's. The remainder are sold off to other manufacturers.
Just compare Focus/ARROW light output and color to any other LED on the market. That is why the outstanding 5 and 10 year warranties can be given.
