The LEDs come with a forward voltage of 2.0V for Red, 3.2V for Green, and 3.1V for Blue. They have a forward current of 20mA. The intensity of the LEDs is 550 mcd for Red, 250 mcd for Green, and 700 mcd for Blue. Being common cathode LEDs, they share a common ground, making them easy to use in a variety of circuits.
These LEDs can be used in a wide range of applications. They are perfect for creating mood lighting, custom indicators, or even for use in robotics. Their diffused glow makes them ideal for use in signs or displays, ensuring that the light is spread evenly and is not harsh on the eyes. Whether you're a hobbyist looking to add some color to your projects or a professional seeking reliable and high-quality LEDs, these are a great choice.
One of the benefits of these LEDs is their size. At 10mm, they are large enough to be easily handled and soldered, yet small enough to be used in compact designs. The common cathode configuration also simplifies wiring, making them user-friendly for beginners while still offering the performance that professionals expect.
