quick question about LED brightness? Answered
How bright is a 3500 mcd LED? I was planning on using 4 3500 mcd LEDs for a bicycle brake light project, but now I'm thinking that it might not be bright enough. Being as this is my first LED project, I'm not too sure how bright 3500 mcd is relative to others. I'd imagine it would be sufficient, but after lighting one with a 1.5 volt battery, I was kinda disappointed.
If there is a mcd rating that is better for this application please share
thanks for your input
