IR LED for remote? Answered

I need to replace a LED in my remote because i dropped it and it fell out and I lost it.
I need help to find an led right for the remote.. It takes 2 AA batteries if that helps any.


I would just pick up a standard IR led from either gag  radio shack or an online electronics store like jameco or sparkfun.  I cant immediately see a reason why that shouldn't work.

how about at maplin electronics?
