Replacement LEDs for all of our 8mm Giant-Scale Navigation Light Sets. These are high-power 1/2 watt LEDs, and are designed to operate at ~120mA, so the current limiting resistors used with them must be of sufficent wattage to handle the extra current. They are the exact same LEDs we use in production, and can be used as direct replacements for an LED that has failed or has been damaged in a crash. The chart (2nd image) gives you the forward voltages of the various colors, for those of you who may be using them in other circuits, or who are simply experimenting with your own lighting devices.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All LEDs require a current limiting resistor inline on one lead to prevent damage!
If you are replacing an LED in one of our 8mm Giant-Scale Navlight Sets, you don't need to add anything, the required resistors are on the circuit board that controls them. For other applications, if you aren't sure what size resistor to use, give us a call, or use the Contact form to tell us what your source voltage will be, and what color LED you have, and we can tell you the size and wattage of the resistors you need.
