    Philips Luxeon SuperFlux LEDs were the original LED in a 4-pins case. The 4 pins carry heat away which allows 70mA maximum continuous current.
    Piranha copied them but their maximum continuous current is only 20mA like an ordinary 5mm LED.

    I'm actually trying to build something similar but for a video camera not a ring but a LED light that I could mount on a stand the thing is I need to work with day light (5.6) and tungsten (3.2) so I will need color correction gels which will stop some of the light so I need something fairly powerful
