Re: Interior LEDs (Bender)

You could just get them on ebay. Other sites do have led but the charge more. If you buy from the right seller then the quality is usually better. besthongkong I think is the guys name on ebay i've used. Quick shipping and good products. But if you don't wire them correctly they will burn out prematurely so make sure you wire them right. Or you could try different approaches then the 3mm or 5mm leds in different locations.

Re: (Bender)

well <A HREF="http://www.ledsupply.com/ " TARGET="_blank">http://www.ledsupply.com/ </A> is a good site. Widely used on led forum I know. They don't have resistors built in. I've never bought any 3mm or 5mm that have built in resistors. You may be able to find some but I havnt before. <A HREF="http://www.eled.com/" TARGET="_blank">http://www.eled.com/</A> could look here as well. You're not wiring them in series so you could use this (<A HREF="http://www.quickar.com/noqbestledcalc.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.quickar.com/noqbestledcalc.htm</A>) to find what resistor you need. Look at the specs of whatever led you want and plug it into the calc.
