 Post subject: Can anyone get UV Leds?
PostPosted: 19.09.2002 10:20 
This is a weird, but an inspired question. I was inspired by the led light for the keyboard and thought if I used UV paint, can I get UV leds to light it? If so, where from?

I haven't heard somerhing called UV-LED's, only IR-LEDs.....You can always buy an UV-strip light like I did and then paint the keyboard or whatever you would want to glow.

P.s: The UV-trip light makes everything white to glow(except most plastic things), it's really cool! :)

My local electronics store has UV LED's. I haven't tried them as they're fairly expensive. But they do exists so you can look for them.

I looked for some uv-leds in my local store. It seems that it isn’t very popular with uv-leds cause they doesn’t have them and this is one of my country’s biggest supplier in electronics.

By the way: how mutch did those uv-leds cost in your local store?

Hey Thx guys, at least I do know they exist.

Camaris,

Does your local electronics store have an online presence? I'm in Oz (Australia) and can't find anything local. Don't mind importing as I do a fair bit R1 dvd stuff.

Thx.

They're parent company has an site (can't find it right now but I'll post it when I do) but I think it's just information not online ordering. I'll check when I get home and post the site.
