Yeah, they get real expensive as the intensity bins go up..
(quick note on LEDs: When the manufacture them, they are all measured, then sorted by color, brightness, and sometimes voltage drop. They call these bins. For cree's, P4 is the intensity bin for that part. A P5 would be brighter with the same current, a P3 would be dimmer).
I use the 240 lumen ones from this company:
But I will run them at 700mA, so they'll be equivelent to 6 of the P4s....
