Connecting LEDs in Parallel to Power Them With Only 3 Volts

About: I am a 13-year-old electrical engineer, software designer, and chef!

Are you tired of needing 150 volts for just 50 LED's? I will show you how to connect LED's in parallel to only draw 3 volts total!

Step 1: Connecting Your LED's

It is very easy to connect LED's in parallel. Just take all the LED's you are using and twist together all the anodes. Do the same thing for the cathodes. Now, you should have one universal anode and one universal cathode. Connect the LED's to your voltage source.

NOTE: Connecting LED's in parallel will draw more current
