Customer Comments

  • Loving these in a custom fog light mod I did on my car. I’m using a LM317 as a current regulator to drive these bad boys off the 13.8 V from my car and that work great. I’m using 5 per side with 1" spacing and they do a pretty job at lighting up the road in front of me. Pictures here:

  • I plugged a few of these into a breadboard with some resistors. When I turned them on, it reminded me of the final scene from The Fifth Element. Yikes! These things are bright!

  • I am considering making a sunrise alarm clock. how bright are these compared to a regular 40 or 60W incandescent? Would that be sufficient to wake me up?

  • Hi. I will have 12V input. How much resist must i take ? (I want the max power light of course). Thanks

  • Sparkfun, would you please take another look at the data sheet for this. According to the attached data sheet these have a viewing angle of 20 degrees (not 30 as listed under the product information). Still a great LED though.

  • Do not be looking at these things when you turn them on, common sense should say that though, they are BRIGHT. 22Ω @ 5v works really well (optimal is 20Ω though, but those are not the most common suckers oh and ¼ watt is all you need).

  • From the data sheet, I’m seeing 13k to 15k mcd.

  • 16-20 candelas? NICE.

works quite well on bicycle dynamo

With 47 ohm resistor and two led in both polarizations. Keeps me quite visible at night and is much lighter pedaling.
