I asked what resistor was needed for a 12v supply to the LED  and was advised that it is a 12v LED so no resistor needed. However, the product description says it is a 3V LED. Please clarify which is right.

1.What curent does the LED require? 2. If I was using a 12V supply, what resistor would I need in series with the LED to limit the current so as not to damage the LED?

Asked by: Steve
The LED is a 12V LED, so in your example no resistor would be needed.

I also want to use this as part of an art project.  I need the button / LED to light up when switched on but not to power anything else.  Is this possible, and how many AA 1.5V batteries would I need to light the LED?  Thanks

What current does the led draw on a 3.3v feed, or does it need an external current limiting resistor?
Asked by: Anonymous
You will need a current limiting resistor if you are using a voltage higher than 2.5v.
