How to wire up this LED? Answered
I've bought this cluster of red LED's from Maplins and I'm unsure how I should go about making a circuit that lights them up using a 9 volt battery. (I also have a simple switch).
The forward voltage of the LED is 2.5v and the forward current is 30mA. According to my calculations I would need to put a 1/2W or greater 220 ohm resistor in the circuit. Is this correct?Also how do I go about wiring the cluster up as they are in fact 6 individual led's. Do I need a resistor for each?
My knowledge of electric circuits is limited.
