Description: Do not look into the light. You know you want to, but boy will you be sorry. 1W per channel, RGB High Power LEDs in one aluminum backed package. These LEDs will blow you away. Light them up then put a coffee cup over the LED to keep your eyes from seeing dots in the periphery. With all three LEDs at 350mA per channel (3W total output), you will need additional heat sinking.

I’ve been buying these for several years now, and the last batch I just got has a new pin layout (on the PCB heat-sink) on them.. no idea that they were going to be changed like that. They actually don’t even match the current picture of them.
Now I have to change my PCB’s to match. Arrrgh.
Other than that, they are excellent in terms of what they can do. Just a little warning about pin-outs would be helpful.
So sorry for the unexpected changes. That was a surprise to us too. Our supplier changed things up without telling us. The pictures will be updated to reflect the new style. Thanks
Very good value range with all three color channels. The only drawback is that it’s sort of difficult to solder leads onto the channels but its not impossible. 4.5 stars
When positioned like the above picture: Anode is the LEFT pins Cathode is the RIGHT pins
