    One very important note: Unlike the Blue and Green LEDs listed, these (and the yellows) have a 1.8-2.2v range, not a 3.0-3.4v range. I burned one out, not thinking to check this for all the LEDs. Not a very expensive mistake, mind you, but one worth avoiding.

    These are really poor quality LEDs. I have had about 1/4 of the leads break off before I could even get them situated into a project.
