A 3.2-3.6 green forward voltage LED , uses 2 ma. to operate? What amperage can it safely handle? Answered
I would like to use one as a charge indicator for a 2500ma. rechargeable AA battery connected to a 2v., 600ma. (full sun) solar panel.
2v. solar + 1.2v charged AA battery = 3.2+ v. and should turn the LED on, but can it handle the amps. or does it need a resister in the curcuit to protect it?
