Luxeon Rebel High Power LED - Warm White

This is a super-high intensity Luxeon Rebel LED, warm white 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 - Warm White 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.

    The Vf is rated as anything between 2.55V to 3.99V. With Typical Voltage being 3.2V. What happens as you use more or less VF?

    The heatsink for the product is no longer made, and nothing has been released to replace it. These heat up too much to stay on for longer than about 20-30 seconds. I suggest using a different LED unless they are meant to flash on and off.

    Would I be able to mount a bunch of these using thermal tape on an old transistor heatsink I have? The heatsink is about 1 inch by about 4 inches, was originally designed for 3 high power transistors. I would like to be able to use that then mount it with power supply in an enclosure as a small up lighting wall wash fixture. If possible I would like to drive it with 5V if I can find an appropriate constant current driver for it, if not I can go with 12v if I have to.

    Can this be connected to an arduino? And if so, how?

    The pictures for this LED are the wrong ones. The front face of the warm white LED itself has a yellowish tint to it.

    WARNING: Careful reading of the datasheet reveals:

    Maximum Ratings limits are specified when applied singularly and for device operation not to exceed 60 seconds.
    Typical continuous operating current is apparently more like 600 - 700 mA with appropriate heat sinking.

    • SomeGuy123 / about 12 years ago * / 1

      If you give it too much current, the top bulb will melt off and the LED will start to become much dimmer.
      I tried it out of curiosity.

  • ddd999 / about 12 years ago / 1

    Which Luxeon part # is this?

    • scurrier / about 12 years ago / 1

      They show it next to the datasheet. Part# LXM3-PW61, it is the 3500K color temp version.
