IMHO they use the Luxeon K2, just like in their bigger lights. Which means the answer is no.
However the older version of the 200L used the Luxeon V emitter which surprisingly matches the characteristics of the Cree MC-E quite well - read more about it here, if you are interested: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?t=210005
If the 200L uses the K2, why couldn't you swap with something like an SSC P4? From what I've seen the SSC and Luxeon are nearly identical in size. Note, I'm not talking about the multi-die P7, just the P4.
Dinotte use SSC P4 in the all lights they produce currently.
Majority of producers use SSC (not to mention old Luxeon III), because these are one of the cheepest high powered LEDs.
As you can read on Web (ex: tint shift SSC P4 :madman: https://www.molalla.net/~leeper/seoulmy.htm HEAVY PIC!) Cree's are MUCH, MUCH better than SSC.
Where's this info from? If it's true can you tell me what optics module they use for the 600L? Maybe my eyes were cheating on me.
btw. upgrading a Luxeon K2 (which is _not_ a Luxeon III/V like in the first generation Minewt and almost all older lights!) to any single-die LED (be it SSC or Cree) shouldn't be that much of an upgrade in terms of light output - a warmer color would be nice though. Cool white tint K2s are maxed out at 200 lumens (at 1A) _minimum_ - according to manufacturer spec. The XP-E R3 (the current max bin AFAIK) from Cree can do 122 lumens, but that is at 350mA, couldn't find official data @1A, but it's around 270-300 lumens.
Then you have to think about the optics to use (the stock may not be good even if the size fits - different LEDs may have different radiation angles), if the driver's gonna work or not, etc. It bloody hell worths it if it is an upgrade to a P7/MC-E, but for a Q5/R2? I'm not sure... unless you're a determined DIY type of course...
