Procedure to getting Voltage and current of an LED without knowing ANYTHING else? Answered
Good day good people. I got batches upon batches of various surface mount and dip leds. Not a single god damn seller wrote the specs on neither the website, nor the package and there are so many that I can't tell which one's from who. Regardless, however the ridiculously low price you get these things for, you can't really complain.
So I need to know if there is a procedure to finding out the current and voltage of an led and that is without knowing a single rating about it. It it guesswork or is there a proper testing procedure? It can be a 1,5v can be a 2.5 or a 3v led I don't know. What should be tested first, what should be second?
All I have is a basic multi-meter and besides checking batteries voltage I have't been using it for anything else.
Thank you, folks.
