This is a simple question as I would like to know anyone has experience with a particular LED range or size.
I aim to place a PCB in an enclosure, I want to avoid making any holes in the enclosure for the LED to shine. I have noticed from an initial experiment if the enclosure wall thickness is thin and if the plastic color is light, the led inside can still provide some light to shine to the outer wall. These LEDs I tested were axel-legged versions from amazon but do not that any spec information on them.
Has anyone else used LEDs in such way?
I would like to know is there a recommended package to use or a certain type of LED? I guess I would still need to experiment with it but would prefer to use a package that has a wider range of led choices to be flexible.
Till now I have used simple 0805 LEDs for simple PCB indications.
