Retired RETIRED

This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale.

This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious. Please refer to the description to see if a replacement part is available.

Replacement: COM-09635 or COM-09637. These have been discontinued. This page is for reference only.
 

Description: This was pretty much a novelty purchase. We just had to see this tiny fleck of an emitter! The Luxeon Portable PWT is a very small LED that can output up to 1Watt (26 Lumens) of blinding bright white light.

  • I never found another source for these, and presumably you won’t be buying more. Although it was lunch time when I stopped in a couple months ago, a few of you did get to see the super-bright LED ring. I’ll probably make an Instructable out of that project and I’ll be pointing people here to buy the parts, so you may want to make sure you can get more if nothing else (alternative: reveal your secret source!)

  • These are really neat little LED’s. Very bright and can be powered briefly by a small 3.7volt lithium cell. They must be soldered to a surface that will sink heat quickly like a PC board with fairly heavy cladding if using them this way or they will melt the solder holding them down. A proper LED driver should be used or a resistor at minimum to keep the current below 400mA or heat willl be a problem. A cluster of these will eat up some excess current and 3 or 4 produce quite a bit of bright white light. Dazzling really. Defiletely the smallest high powered LED. For the price there’s nothing I’ve seen especially in such a small package that outputs as much light until you get to the 3 watt class.

    • Agreed, these things are really spectacular for their size. Also, if you’ve done a little bit of SMD soldering in the past, you’ll have no problem with these. The only issue is that they do get very warm, as 15504 mentioned, also if you melt one with your soldering iron (As I did) it will short, so it stands to reason that if you left it on long enough it would heat itself up until it shorted, then melt itself free of it’s solder pads, lol. (I’m gonna blink mine with a tiny IC to avoid the heat problem altogether)
      They’re the only thing that will work for my application and i think they’re great, pick a few up just for the novelty.
