LEDS

I am wondering if you run a led at full voltage and amps then as you add more resistance light output goes down here is my question 1 led at 20ma or 2 led at 10ma do not 2 leds give more light than 1. Like is light output a linear taper to amount of current applied or is it more of an audio taper?

Im trying to make a singe row 18 LED circuit, i used 18 random resistors that i salvaged from things (one for every led), i connected that to a 12v battery and only 4 light up, (1 out of the 4 are dim, the other 3 are good) what do i do to make all 18 light up. (the LEDs are blueish)?

Leds

New to site not sure this were to post this. Led's for ac powered model railroading, to replace incandescent bulbs.  Voltage to track varies from 5 to 17 volts AC.  Leds will light up, but what is it doing to them. They do not pop like a flash bulb at top voltage. I've rectified some to dc voltage for lights in cars, the variable voltage seems to power them. Ideally a circuit that put out a constant 3.2 DC volts, with a variable 5 to 17 volt AC input.  Or maybe would a constant 3.2 volt AC out would function? I found that with HO DCC control, a white led with a 1k resistor will function, have not ran them for more than few hours though. Prewired rectified leds go for around $3.00  each, 5 passenger cars, 2 bulbs each, gets pricey with 4 sets of cars. Surly someone has gone through this.

Replacing LEDs on a LED fan? Answered

If the LEDs are the same voltage, can i just cut the wires on the LED fan, and just simply re-solder the new LEDs onto the wires? I have been looking at several Instructables about replacing the LEDs on a fan, and they all have complicated re-wiring ideas..Can't you just simply replace the LEDs with the news ones?

LEDs on eBay?

My brother and I recently made an eBay account, and we were just browsing through everything and we came across many LEDs. Most of the LEDs in bulk that I saw were from China or Hong Kong. I am just curious if anyone knows how reliable, safe, and if I would be getting my money's worth. I did buy some from besthongkong.com, and those came, but I am a little skeptical about these guys on eBay. Any suggestions?

LEDs on a costume?

I have never used LEDs on a costume before, my planned costume will have approximately 50 separate strands of lights on it, in two different colors.  The way the costume is designed, there is simply no place to hide 50 battery packs (20, maybe but not 50), is there a way to attach several strands of lights to one battery pack and still light up for several hours? I was planing on buying a long strip of LEDs that I could cut to length, what types of battery packs would I need to use?  Any instructions, videos or tutorials would be awesome.

They have 16 watch size batteries linked up to super bright LEDs.

LED help?

i would really like some help with a project that i am working on. i am trying to make a ring of leds and am curious as to the soldering aspect. i have heard multiple responses ( never solder leds in succession, you don't need a resistor etc. ) and hope to get a straight answer with this. if someone can draw up a schematic for this i am more of a visual learner. i'll be using 8 leds in a ring form and will have them posted in a piece of plexi-glass all the same distance from each other... any answers that get me closer to my goal would be very much appreciated. P.S. i don't have a lot of space for this project it is going to be installed into a thin area ( front - back )

Help with LEDs

Hi, I'm new to the whole electronics thing, and i decided to try and make a sign for my brother for christmas. I was planning to back light it with 4 rows of 3 leds in each row, each row being a different color. I was planning to power it with a plug in the wall power supply that outputs 9v DC 450 mA. Also i was planning to have a switch for each row, and a potentiometer to control all the leds. The leds have about a 2.8 forward voltage @ 20mA. I was wondering if it would be possible to power the leds with this power supply, and if so, what the circuit diagram would look like with all the resistors, leds, etc.. (whatever else i need). Thanks

Diffusing LEDs

Hi, I am currently building an LED matrix, and would ideally like to diffuse the light from the LED into maybe a square or rectangle shape(using some sort of border). What would be the best way to do this? I've tried using tracing paper, normal paper, fabric etc. to try and spread out the light, but it always seems to create the 'circle' which comes from the top point of the LED rather than spreading it out. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks :).

I built this shelving and I would like to put an LED in each section, but plug it into a wall outlet for its power source. I don't want to have to change batteries all the time. I have never done anything with lighting or LEDs. Series or parallel? I don't know anything about resistors either. I know that once I figure this out it will open the door for many other projects, but I was hoping someone would know where to start... Any good websites or books? And if anyone has any ideas or done something similar I could totally use some advice. Thanks!

Led Help

I have a whelen white vertex led light head. Normally there is a 12 volt dc controller already attached to the light it self that controls the flash pattern which you can change. However some one cut the light head off the controller part and the controller cant be found so now i have just a light head with 3 wires red black and green red being power green and black being ground. there are a total of 6 leds 3 off the green wire and 3 off the black and a common power wire. my problem is i cannot figure out the proper voltage and ampures needed to power the lights. i have tried to ohm the leds (and yes i tried every which way with the leads) but i suppose my fluke 115 does not have the range needed for these lights. i connected a known working light and controller to 12 volts and mesured the power going to that light which read which read about 3.7 volts at .36 amps and each set of 3 leds being .18 amps and with out any leds connected i got 5.2 volts i just want to make sure this is correct before i put 5 volts and a resistor to them and they blow. ill post pics and a crappy diagram of what i think is in the light head
