. Within limits, it will work either way or in a series/parallel configuration. . What is your power source - how many volts and how much current available? . Which LEDs are you using - voltage and current?

i havent exacty planned that out yet, but which would work best? maybe i should use 1.6 volt leds and one of those 12-volt batteries? and umm, i cant remember the definition of current from science class.

Current is the rate of flow coming from your source of electricity.
