Ultra-Bright Blue 5mm LED 5500 mcd
Ultra-Bright Blue 5mm LED 5500 mcd is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, quality productI had bought some blue LED's before but they were the 3mm size. They worked even though they are supposed to be as bright as some 5mm green that I bought but that is not so especially since I found these, and they do match the brightness of the green ones. At the time I bought the the 3mm ones, I did not see any blue 5mm, but that does not mean that they weren't there I could of just missed them
