Luxeon Rebel High Power LED - Royal Blue

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

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 lense and lense 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.

Luxeon Rebel High Power LED - Royal Blue 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.

    "These LEDs provide optimized light quality and efficiency". Um, if they're so efficient, wouldn't they produce minimal heat?

  • These LEDs have 3 copper traces on them, what are they for? After looking at the eagle schematic, it looks like a normal LED, but with an extra pin at an odd angle. What am I not seeing here...

    Looking at using these on a costume will be about 30 of them all need to be turned on at the push of a button....would this be safe for a costume they will be in a plastic enclosure....

    Anyone know of a good driver to use with these? I've got a dozen of them; I'd love to pulse them and not be sucking huge amounts of power ...

  • SgtOneill / about 13 years ago / 1

    can we use this with just the heatsink? no lens?

    How about a product performance comment?
    These little suckers jam out, I was expecting to be impressed but... this thing's about the size of a grain of rice and pumps out more light than the flashlight i keep in my car, haha.
    They do put out some heat though, I'll be flashing mine to avoid the problem, but i would definitely suggest a heatsink in any application where the light remains on for more than... 5 seconds.

    creating light in general is very in-efficient. incandescent light bulbs produce any where between 6 and 10 lumens per watt. where these LEDs depending on color can produce anywhere between 60 to 100 lumens per watt. so you can see that they are many times more efficient than light bulbs, unfortunately the power not converted to light is converted to heat.
