Man, this is really kewl! I was given a VW shaped mouse. I am going to try and modify it to put some plastic into the lights and put LEDs behind it.

Question - Is there a limit to the number of LEDs that can be supported in a single mouse?

Would it make more sense to use lower Amp bulbs to include more of them, which, of course requires the resisters to be added?

There is a limit. You can only have 5 volts from mouse and ps2/usb port can give max. 500 mA. If you use 2.5 v and 20 mA leds you could connect these in pairs and then connect these pairs in parallel about 22 times. 22*2 leds. I have never taken that much out from the ports so keep these led counts facts.

I was only able to get three from the 5V directly connected to my LEDs. Any more and my PC would actually power off! 8O
