Those LED's are pretty dim. The LED I used in my mod were 3000mcd Hyper White's. To get a decent light you probably want at least 1000-1500mcd. The LED you listed there will work in the mouse but it won't be very bright.

That is correct. The blue ones that I used has 3000-4500mcd. 45mcd is 100 times dimmer so maybe you should try to look some more for a brighter led.
