Is an ultra LED not bright enough? Kick things up a notch with these SUPER BRIGHT LEDs!

Description [Hide]

So - you need an LED of spectacularly bright proportions. Tiny LED? Too... Tiny. Standard LED? Totally weak. Ultra Bright LED? Boring and bland. Now it's time to push your project to the max with SUPER BRIGHT LEDS, THAT CREATE MORE THAN FOUR TIMES THE LIGHT OF THE SUN!*

*These LEDs do not produce anywhere near four times the light of the sun.

These white/red/green/orange/blueLEDs are the same size and form factor as the other LEDs we carry (5mm), but produces significantly more light. We even use them in our PumLantern to add that extra glow.
