Luxeon Rebel High Power LED - Cool White 120lm

This is a super-high intensity Luxeon Rebel LED, cool white in color. These LEDs provide optimized light quality and efficiency to address a number of project needs, including LED illumination.

These are the higher powered Rebels with 120 lumen output at 350mA.

These LEDs can be blindingly bright and have a max forward current of 1A! This LED has a typical forward voltage of 3VDC (2.55V to 3.99V range). They’re also tiny; measuring in at about 3 x 4.5 mm.

These LEDs can get toasty; you may want to consider adding some form of heatsinking to them. In addition to the heatsink, we also carry a lens and lens carrier specific to the rebel LEDs. Those components are all part of a solderless LED holder, they all snap together and really simplify the connection to these LEDs.

Note: These were found in our production stock and will be available one last time before they sell out. We will not be carrying these LEDs once they are gone, get them while you can.

Luxeon Rebel High Power LED - Cool White 120lm Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

3 Soldering

Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.
See all skill levels


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.

Customer Comments

  • How would I hook this up to an arduino board to run a light board. Is it just like connecting regular leds in series and then connecting the positive to a pin and the negative to a ground?

    • Nope - these take much, much more current, which the Arduino cannot handle. You’ll want to google for some Arduino projects that use these high power LEDs, they’ll generally use a constant current driver (which can be a voltage regulator configured as such, like the LM317) and/or a mosfet to switch the power source to the LED directly (though possibly still through a resistor to at least prevent too high a current).

  • Do you have to use a resistor like you have to do with a standard led?

  • The datasheet lists bins with different color temperatures (the color temperature can vary from 4500K-8000K) on pg. 25-26. Is it possible to request LED’s that are in certain bins?

  • The datasheet only describes a (maximum) minimum luminosity of 100 lumens at 350 mA. Please explain where the proper specifications are in the datasheet so I can compare the luminosity at 700the mA and the color temperature.

    • Page 4 of the datasheet does list output at 700mA, but if what you looking for specifically is not in the datasheet you will need to contact the manufacture directly. If you have any other questions please email techsupport at sparkfun dot com.

  • Will there be a triple play board for this one?

  • Edited: theses are easy to solder with solder paste a skillet and the saber PCB from luxeonstar
