Bright Blinking White 5mm LED 1500 mcd

Bright blinking LEDs add emphasis to a project and grab the attention of a passerby. Each LED may be speed controlled by increasing or decreasing the supply voltage from 3 VDC to 10 VDC for a speed variance of 2 blinks per second to 2.8 blinks per second. Each bright blinking LED features a 5 mm (T 1-3/4) clear lens.


  • Source material: GaN
  • Emitting color: WHITE

Electrical/Optical Characteristics (TA= 25°C, IF= 20 mA):

  • Luminous intensity (Lv): 1500 mcd
  • Forward voltage (VF): 3.0 VDC (min), 5.0 VDC (typ), 10.0 (max)
  • Viewing angle (2?1/2): 20°

Absolute Maximum Rating (TA= 25°C):

  • Peak forward current: 70 mA
  • Average forward current (IF): 30 mA

  • Reverse current (IR, VR=5V): 100 µA
  • Operating temperature: -40°C to +80°C

Note: LEDs are static-sensitive devices. Observe static sensitivity handling precautions. When forming leads, the leads should be bent at a point at least 3 mm from the base. Avoid damage to LEDs by soldering for no longer than 3 seconds with 700° iron. Always use current limiting series resistors with LEDs. For help with designing your project and selecting correct resistors, use the LED Wizard by Rob Arnold.

i forgot what else i need to wire with this cause i know you have to wire something else with it what was it?
Asked by: 110volts
A resistor or a series of resistors to allow your specified voltage.For this product 3 VDC is minimum input for operation and 10 VDC is maximum. 3 VDC is slower frequency of blinks per second and 10 VDC is faster accordingly.It depends on your power source output.This answer is very basic, try using the LED calculator for a single LED.http://linear1.org/ckts/led.phpThe LED wizard for multiple LED'shttp://led.linear1.org/led.wizIf you plan to continue working with electronics, it's a good idea to try your working knowledge here and there as you progress.
