We all know that you can never get too many LEDs. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. This is a pack of basic red, yellow, blue and green 5mm LEDs (5 of each) all conveniently packaged in a nice reusable ESD safe bag.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

These are fun, but they need a current limiting resistor in front of them. I used a Li battery, but needed a 5 to 10k ohm resistor to prevent burning out the red, yellow, and green. The blues would go with a 1k ohm and was the brightest by far.
great fun and a nice selection of parts.

Nice product. Bright. Good for projects, etc.
We tend to rely on Sparkfun for solid collections of awesome stuff. Especially as we are prototyping new ideas. The LED assortment we bought was just another rock star collection of pieces that work great, with solid explanations and support along for the ride.
They aren’t going to blow your mind or save your marriage, but they sure do make electronics projects light up real good.
All the LEDs work. I guess that’s a 4 or 5.
They where leds and they came in a 20 pack. So I gues that works.
I bought some blue ones from Amazon for my brother’s birthday and they didn’t come in time. One month later I got a refund because they still hadn’t come. Then I thought I should have bought some from Sparkfun all along. I did, there was no problems dealing with them. They actually shipped for one thing. They came in a red box and came with static resistant bags. They worked as intended. Will definitely buy from Sparkfun again if I need anything.
