 Post subject: Question on resistors
PostPosted: 28.09.2004 03:04 
Hi all. I bought some green leds at radio shack with 2.1v 25mA 6.3mcd and then I read that I had to buy a resistor as well. I read through the different threads asking for help on this topic and I went to radio shack and found some 100 ohm resistors which I thought would work but there were different wattages on some! I bought a pack of 1/4 watt and 1/2 watt since they were cheap and I figured that I could ask for help here. Well which would I use in the mouse led mod? The 1/2 or 1/4? Or do I have to back and get others? Thanks in advance for yuor responses!:D

are you adding the led or are you replacing the existing one,

the 1/4 watt should be fine, however if you are just replacing the led teht is in there you whouldnt hav e to use the resistor.

and radioshack is teh suxz0rz

I am adding an led to my mouseso I am happy that I got a reply! Thanks for your help! Radio shack is the only place that I know of here that I knew sold resistors. Where would you suggest that I buy supplys like leds and resistors? Online stores maybe?:D

http://www.lsdiodes.com is the best place for leds, although you can get them cheaper on ebay, resistors are fine to get at radioshak tho, as well as random stuff that you cant wait for, but most online stores are better and cheaper.
