Led Wiring?!?


Recommended Posts

Cool thanks, glad you like it :D hoping it looks as good as it sounds. Long way to go yet though. Anyone got any tutorial sites for me? I'm sure someone posted some earlier but theyre gone now. Could anyone email them me? Or msn?#

All you have to do is take a 9v battery and connect it to some sort of battery clip. Then connect the positive wire of the clip to a resistor and then to positive leg of the first LED. Then if you are gonna use many LEDs connect the positive leg of the second LED to the first LED's negative leg directly or with wire if you want them further apart. Then when you have enough LEDs connect either to an ON/OFF switch or to the ring of a stereo jack to make the LEDs goes off when you pull out the cable or the battery will drain very fast.

Use this to calculate the strength of resistor: http://metku.net/index.html?sect=view&n=1&...dcalc/index_eng

edit: it might thought be smarter to wire them in parallel, if you are gonna use a lot of LEDs..
