Strengths:

The XP-L HI in a SMO P60 throws like a C8. Way better throw than an XM-L in a P60 for sure. The "neutral" tint is at the high end, maybe 5000K or a little higher. No reason to get a cooler tint in my opinion. My driver had bridges as S1, S2, and S4 and came with 3 modes (Low, Medium, and High in that order; this conflicts with the instructions for the V2 driver) and with mode memory that sets after the light is on for a second or two. The low is only a few lumens and the medium is still pretty bright, but that's a personal preference. Modes are pretty well spaced. 2 7135's on the backside of the chip, but the light is still seriously bright for 2280mA. Probably better not to drive it any harder in a P60 module honestly. Tailcap current readings are 0.01A, 0.66A, and 2.20A. I see no PWM, even on low.

Weaknesses:

Tint could be a little warmer. I like around 4000K. It would be good if KD would give the bin on the tint. Indoors there is a little splash of yellow in the hotspot, but it's nothing significant and you don't see it outdoors.

Summary:

If you want to try out the XP-L HI and see how a factory dedome can really increase the the throw, this is a great purchase. I'd like to see KD release this in a C8, but right now they just seem to have the 6500K versions out.
