Unboxing a $500, 500W 20,000 Lumens 5600K Daylight LED (BC270H) – and its Substantial Heatsink!

This thing looks like a beast:

Just look at the size of that heatsink! (And yeah there’s an integrated fan in the heatsink.)

Yuji LED now releases two types of small LES COB package to meet the market need for higher light intensity with very small form factors. Yuji LED’s recent compact-LES COB – BC160H, BC270H – remarkably reduced dimensions. In the100W-class BC160H, the diameter of its LES has scaled down 9 mm from the 40 mm typically specified in conventional 100W COB packages. For the BC270H offering, the LES is only 19 mm. These LED packages are highly compact and their LES is extremely smaller than the most existing COB packages in the market. Moreover, they provide the exceptionally high light intensity and even higher Center Beam Candle Power (CBCP). These offer compact and bright lighting solutions for spotlights as well as high bay lights.
