This is a very standard green LED. The lens is 3mm in diameter, and is diffused.

It is just your average LED but with two “Perks”. The first perk is that it is only 3 millimeters (Mm) in diameter which is nice if it isn’t the main focus of the project. This is great for indicator lights or just to brighten up your project. The second perk is that it only requires 2 volts. This is great for low power projects. Normal LED’s usually use 3.3-5 volts which may not seem like a huge difference but when you need a lighter battery it is nice to be able to preserve the battery a little bit. And thank to everyone who read this for putting up with my rambling.
