Product details

Security Flashing LED

  • Flashing red LED in a black mounting bezel
  • Indicates that an alarm is installed
  • Can be used even without an alarm
  • Comes fitted with a 1.5m lead

A flashing LED in a mounting bezel designed to be mounted in the dashboard to indicate that an alarm is installed (even if no alarm is installed!) Fitted with 1.5m lead. Operates on 12Vdc and draws 10mA.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expensive and rubbish! The first one I got didn't flash; its replacement flashed then stayed lit, repeating this everytime it was turned on. Buy a separate flashing led and a 220 ohm/2W resistor, and make your own. It will be much cheaper and more reliable.

Bought one & light no longer flashes, but continuous red. Have cut wiring shorter, so is this the reason ? battery is also linked to a solar panel via a regulator!

Can this LED operate from a 9v battery?

I have tried it with a 9v battery and it works, although it is dimmer than a 12v source.

If left on my bike direct to it battery how long roughly would it take to drain the battery? 

Asked by: Jackie27
The item will draw 10mA per hour, unfortunately we cannot say how long it will take the drain the battery as you have not provided the total capacity of the battery in question.
