LilyPad LED Green (5pcs)

Here is a simple 5 pack of green LEDs for LilyPad, or whatever else you can dream up. Light up the night!

LilyPad is a wearable e-textile technology developed by Leah Buechley and cooperatively designed by Leah and SparkFun. Each LilyPad was creatively designed to have large connecting pads to allow them to be sewn into clothing. Various input, output, power, and sensor boards are available. They're even washable!

Note: A portion of this sale is given back to Dr. Leah Buechley for continued development and education of e-textiles.

A quick tutorial to get you started in the world of light up origami flowers.

Core Skill: DIY

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

1 DIY

Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

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.

2 Electrical Prototyping

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.

  • How bright are theses compared to normal 5mm LED's? They look cool, but if they're dimmer than normal LED's, I have no reason to buy them.

      I'm afraid there's no such thing as 'normal' 5mm LEDs. They come in all sorts of intensities, wavelengths and beam characteristics that severely affect how bright it appears. However, you can get a rough estimate from the datasheet. It puts the luminous intensity at 800mcd (Candela) with a viewing angle of 130°, compared to e.g. LED - Basic Green 5mm where the datasheet reports about 175mcd, 50°*, or compared to LED - Super Bright Green at 11,500mcd, 10°. So while it would probably be brighter than the Basic Green, it would be nowhere near as bright as the Super Bright Green. On the other hand, it's tiny and in an e-textiles -friendly format, and the Basic Green comes in a nice diffuse green package (so you'll know it's green even when it's not on, which may be important for indicators). Each have their merits :)

Small and bright

Yup, they are LED's alright! They are very bright, I ended up sewing them behind some thin felt and they can still be clearly seen. I've only used 3 of them, and they all worked, assuming the other two work then it'll be a perfect set.
