  • will 3V kill this LED?
    i'm unsure about max voltage because of the mystery resistor attached..

    • 3V should be fine, I use these with coin cells all the time. The resistor is 100ohms.

Great time saver

We've been doing this[1] project in elementary school (K5) but getting the LEDs prepped (bending the leads into circles) was taking a lot of time and it was hard for both adults and children to understand/remember LED polarity (which side is plus, which is minus).

The lilypad leds solve both problems, we had space in our budget, and the cost increase is worth it ... we're not going back to plain leds. No more evenings of bending led leads, and the + and - markings make it much easier to explain and troubleshoot. Less rework for LEDs sewn the wrong way around. We also get blue/green/red units, pink/purple/white didn't work out as well.
