Could you connect 8, 3.2 volt LED's to a 5 volt power source using parallel? If so, what resistor?
I'm trying to connect 8 3.2 volt Blue LED's to a 5 volt power source for a cube lamp I am making. I've done this a few years back but with red LED's and didn't really know what i was doing. But I just found out that Blue LED's need more power to light up. I have them soldered together in a parallel configuration that i found on instructables
but i dont know what resistor to use for them. One website says to connect a 100-ohm resistor to each LED and another says to connect a 10-Ohm to one end. I apologize ahead of time because i'm not very knowledgeable in electronics so if its not too much trouble, could you put it into simple terms.
Thank you so much for your time!
