So you're on the hunt for a bright Red-Green-Blue LED are you? Well your mission is over because we've found you one of the brightest! This 3W RGB LED can produce a brightness of 43000 millicandela, that's around 3 times brighter than the most luminous 5mm LEDs out on the current market!

Description [Hide]

WARNING! These LEDs are BRIGHT, and when we say BRIGHT, we mean that it isn't very bright to look at these BRIGHT LEDs! (or if you do, use some shades).

The sun is bright and these LEDs seem almost brighter... almost. The standard rating for each element (red/green/blue) in the LED is 350mA so try to limit the current to this value per channel when placing these in your application. The aluminum circuit board does pull the heat away from the LED to make it usable, but it is a good idea to use additional heat-sinking to keep it happy in the long term. Excess heat will substantially reduce the life of this LED!

These are perfect for edge-lighting & back-lighting signs and displays. Also good for mood lights or night lights, combine it with our diffused enclosure for a great party light or a rainbow patio display. Give them a shot on your robot, we've never seen robot eyes that bright before!

Now also available as part of our Star Controller RGB LED easy-interface kit
