So much power and light from such a small package. This 3W per channel, Triple Output High Power RGB LED is sure to shed a lot of light on any project you add it to. This LED acts as any other LED except they require much more power while delivering a light as intense of a thousand suns going super nova (this is an exaggeration but you know what we mean)!
Please be aware that with all three LEDs (9W total output), you will need additional heat sinking.
This LED sits upon an aluminum backed PCB to help with heat dissipation but with a 9W total output, additional heat sinking will be required. Additionally, each LED requires an operating voltage of 2.2-2.6V for red, 3.2-3.8V for green, and 3.2-3.8V for blue.
Note: We like to joke around about super novas and all, but seriously, don't look directly into the LED.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.

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: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.
