I'm looking for a name or place to buy some high power 5mm LEDs.
Typical 5mm LED insides look like this:


But I am looking for some like this, with the larger reflecting cone:


Any idea if there is a specific name for this type of LED? Can I find it on ebay? Thanks

My solar garden lights have short 5mm white and multi-color LEDs that have an extremely wide beam angle.
But they are not high power LEDs, they operate at about 10mA.

I've used the 3W blue KingBright LEDs, and they are bright - it hurts to look at them directly/ But, that's to be expected with 700 mA of current. One thing I noticed is that the measured light output does not dramatically increase above 500 mA, but the amount of heat generate does.

Also, the Luxeon Rebels look comparable. I think Sparkfun also has a lens, mounting bracket, and heatsink for the Rebels.
