Miniature Wired LEDs - 0805 SMT LED - 5 pack
£4.99 ex VAT
These ultra-fine wired LEDs were designed with model-makers and crafters in mind, but they could also come in handy if you want to add tiny points of light to your designs/projects without needing SMT-level soldering skills. Use this five-pack bundle of Miniature Wired 0805 LEDs for easy-breezy LED wiring. They're miniature (2mm x 1.25mm), making them incredibly easy to embed into any project, structure, costume, or wearable.
The wires are approximately 30cm long, 30AWG wire wrap wire and can be sewn over, or embedded in a casing. Since the wires are single-strand wire-wrap they will hold their shape and can be threaded through a small space.
There are no series resistors installed in the strand, if you want to use another supply you will need to calculate and solder in a resistor. Like most (white with phosphor) LEDs, these have a forward voltage of about 3.2V and a current limit of about 20mA, Red is positive (anode) and blue is negative (cathode)
- These LEDs do not have any strain relief at the solder joint, so they are extraordinarily delicate. when bending the wire, make sure to hold the LED by the wires to avoid any stresses on the solder point itself.
