Is the reverse voltage on all LEDs always 5v or more? Answered
I have a bunch of LEDs (mainly 0603 and 5050 smd, 3mm, and 5mm - all colors). Most of them don't list a reverse voltage. Those that do say 5volts. My question is, do any LEDs have less than 5v reverse voltage? Is it possible to accidentally kill them by connecting backwards to a 5v power supply? Should I put resistors on both the positive and negative to protect them (would that even work)? Thanks.
