Can you recommend an LED to me? Answered
I'm looking for a white LED that is 5mm or smaller. My problem is that there is such a great selection of LED's on the internet, I can't determine which of the many options are best! Here's my criteria:
*5mm or smaller (cannot have a heatsink)
*white (preferably without a bluish tint; a pure white)
*wide viewing angle
*bright (high mcd)
† this is the order of priority for the criteria as well
I understand that there's a trade off between viewing angle and mcd; ideally I would like to find a happy medium.
Through the research I've done, I've heard names like Nichia GS, Cree 503D, and Jeled. I'm not sure if these have a large enough viewing angle but regardless I wasn't able to find anywhere to buy these. It would be great if you could include a link to a place to buy your suggested LED or at least insure that they are available for sale before posting a suggestion, after all it's not useful for me to know the name of a product I can't obtain. As always, Thank you!
