If you put an LED inside a balloon, would the balloon pop?

 ie does it heat up at all? And if it does, can balloons withstand any heat inside? I'd imagine not but I'm not a balloon expert.

Try it and see, wht have you got to loose? You learn a lot by action and observation and develope ideas as you go along.
I suppose my remarks went down like a LED balloon : -) LOL.
LED balloon, that's a very clever pun. Color me impressed, and illuminated as well.

Ah but LED ballons sink very quickly.

No - it makes quite a good round light if you construct a suitable;le base.
I just noticed this one:

in the related panel. ------>

It kinda looks like latex ballons with LED-throwies inside.  Not sure what the exact power flows or temperatures are inside these ballons, but perhaps the idea is more workable than you had previously thought?

Do a quick search for me and type in that little white box up top right: "do leds get hot".
