My new 12w+ Amber module with quick connects arrived so I installed it in my Phoenix.

Nice! That looks really good with the blue/purple AV switch.

It's actually a white switch :P
I wanted it to be able to go with any colour and I wanted the black bodied switch to blend into the black grip of hilt.

This hilt is similar to Ahsoka Tano's.
Is it on purpose?

Uh. Yeah.

The Ka'tano is based solely off of Ahsoka's hilt, and the Pheonix is loosely inspired by it, and other SF models, mixing some of their best design elements into one hilt.

Also, how does the 12W+ appear to the eye? Noticeably brighter, or just a more even illumination? I have two 12W+ LED sabers coming sometime hopefully soon and can't wait to see them in person.

More even distribution and less flare at the bottom. No difference in brightness.
If you look into it, you can see that the dies are grouped a lot tighter together than compared to the 12w if you needed a visual confirmation of the difference. Gimme a few minutes. I'll upload some pics comparing my 12w+ Amber and 12w Red

The grouping in the Amber was really difficult to capture but you still get an obvious idea of the difference.

To note: the grouping of the amber is not off center. I was tilting the module to try to get a good picture but I kept getting a glare from a lamp and the lens.

Nice! Cyan is my next choice!
I have a Prodigal Son 12w+ Green along with a 12w+ Light Blue Redeemer (for my brother) in transit.
AND a 12w+ Purple Exalted (black grenade) just had its shipping label made.

THANK YOU NeBosa! I've wanted somebody to post a picture of the LED QuickConnect attached to an LED, I'm not familiar with how LED internals work so I was curious!

Great colour! Makes me slightly regret getting yellow instead of amber, even though it's nor arrived yet!

I'm so torn between Yellow and Amber. They both look really good. I want to see a side by side comparison.

Amber and yellow side by side in this video... If you pause it at about 3:11, there's a really good side by side comparison shot of the two. :)

Oh I still can't decide. Hey both look really good. It looks like when I get a chance I will be just collecting LED assemblies. Thank god for quick connects. I am far to indecisive.
