    In this video we'll be making an insanely bright water-cooled LED light that looks remarkably similar to sunlight!
    This is because it uses a high quality LED from Yuji which as a high colour rendering index (CRI). Since its completion this project has been used to light every single one of my videos! It's just that good!
    ↓↓↓PARTS LIST BELOW↓↓↓

    High-quality Yuji LED (best LED ever in my opinion):

    Generic LED (not as good colour rendition, but similar brightness):

I find this interesting for automotive use. I'd like to fit the LED into a vintage spotlight housing and watercooled seems like a good solution to have the bulky cooling system external as I couldn't possibly fit a heat sink and fan into the closed housing. The issue I might encounter is the length of the water pipes, I don't know if that pump could handle it. I would also like to use a single cooler and pump for two separate LED's

If anyone wondering, there is pre-applied thermal paste on the coldplate between the LED and itself. You should always use some heat conductive paste when cooling transistors, leds, microchip IHSs or microchip dyes.

In the video you don't mention the length of the microphone goose neck. They seem to be available in 6"->19" lengths. I'm sort of guessing that one is a 13". Can you confirm that? I'm planning on building a pair of these. Thanks for the great video!

Someone should start making projectors with LED light sources. Not only would it allow a much brighter picture, it could do so while using less power, producing much less heat, needing much less cooling, and therefore being a much quieter projector. As if this wasn't enough the "lamp" would last as long as the projector itself, and unlike bulbs neither lose brightness or experience color-shifts. I have already been waiting years for LED-based projectors to come to market, but the manufacturers are incredibly slow to do so. Apart from cost (which can't be that bad; after all this brighter-than-required LED is $170 to the consumer, buying a single one - an expensive part, to be sure, but the bulbs they use today aren't cheap either and are much less suited to the task, as far as I can understand).

Don't be so sure about that, the Yuji led uses a ultraviolet led which then is lighting up a florescent coat. You could have UV coming out of that lamp, how much and of what type of UV it is I do not know. But if the florescent coat is damaged you would have UV leaking out.

Like this a lot. I have a Water cooler which I don't use, (too noisy), which will be ideal for this. Quick check of the two recommended 100W LEDs shows the better one is $130 while the lesser is almost $6. The cheaper one sounds just fine.

What's the most powerful led torch you think you could make with a precise zoom point I'm impressed with the tiny xml t6 type torches hand sized could you make a mega bright say about 120mm -200mm long and hand grippable diameter with your know how and all these new lithium ion batteries I think you could make an excellent flashlight for search lights hunting etc and give companies a run for their money and maybe market your product. You should be earning something for all your efforts love your gadgets always been a bit of flashlight geek my latest 30'000 and 40'000 lumen torches are great but I think you could blow those away I'd love to see what you could come up with keep the ideas coming thanks
