Description: LEDs - those blinky things. A must have for power indication, pin status, opto-electronic sensors, and fun blinky displays.

This is a very basic 5mm LED with a red lens. It has a typical forward voltage of 2.0V and a rated forward current of 20mA.


  • 1.8-2.2VDC forward drop
  • Max current: 20mA
  • Suggested using current: 16-18mA 
  • Luminous Intensity: 150-200mcd

  • I’ve a question: can a led like this work at 24v with a resistor?

    • The max forward voltage for this LED is 2.2v. Take a look at the datasheet for more information about the max ratings for this.

      • Does this mean that you can’t apply more than 2.2 V across the LED terminals without running into trouble?

        • These are the LEDs we use in our Inventor’s Kit with the Arduino Uno and the Redboard. We do run these off of a 5V line, but always with current limiting resistors in circuit. You shouldn’t have any issue with that.

  • When will this be in stock?
