Is there an easy formula or an online calculator to figure out what type of resistor I would need to hook up to an LED to keep from blowing it?
I know you can also have a string of LEDs and the more you use you won't need resistors. I'm just trying to figure out for different projects with different batteries, what the most efficient circuit would be.
Also what does T1 3/4 mean? I noticed that on the 5mm LEDs. How does it differ from ones without a designation?
