That does sound about right. Although all small technicalities aside, who thinks that it would make for one cool saber?  ;D  ;D Dang you science and your heat  :P

So it could be a 5W white led with many wafers?

I know that mah has something to do with the size of the wafer.

Nope, because a multi-wafer LED isn't considered a "single" LED anymore.

I read that that new led needs 8v of power, but remember if it dosent have optics for it its usless to us. flashlight guys will love it.

And you need to think Alias. Voltage is a totally different beast from wattage. The LED takes 8 watts, and there's a nifty formula for figuring out watts.

Wattage=Volts x Amps

Following that formula, if the LED required 8V, it would take 0 amps which isn't possible.

Me thinks somebody forgot how to multiply for a second there, LOL
