Hi Freaks,
Does anyone know of low current/power but very bright LED's (in other words high light output @ low current)? I mean anything from 5mA - 10mA is ok (lower current is better)but I am looking for brighter than the usual general purpose LED's.
Thanks.

The Super Bright Kingbright LEDs I use (L7104SR/x) are very bright at low currents. I use the water-clear red ones.

Any link where I can buy these? The ones I looked on this site are all 30mA and higher.

No, those are white ones intended for illumination. If you want indicators, get the ones I mentioned. They are 3 mm, BTW. I buy them from Rapid Electronics (UK).

Ok got it, Thanks. I will check more but I didn't see anything that is less than 10 mA.

It's quite visible with 1 mA or less.

Those super-bright things are very bright, even at 2ma.

That part number doesn't ring a bell with me, and rings no bells with Google either.
