This is a super-high intensity Luxeon Rebel LED, red in color. These LEDs provide optimized light quality and efficiency to address a number of project needs, including LED illumination.
These LEDs can be blindingly bright and have a max forward current of 1A! This LED has a typical forward voltage of 3VDC (2.55V to 3.99V range). They're also tiny; measuring in at about 3 x 4.5 mm.
These LEDs can get toasty; you may want to consider adding some form of heatsinking to them. In addition to the heatsink, we also carry a lense and lense carrier specific to the rebel LEDs. Those components are all part of a solderless LED holder, they all snap together and really simplify the connection to these LEDs.
