LED Modding Demystified

Postby Jeff » 2004.09.25 3:39 pm

If you want to do some serious PC/Automotive lighting, custom build your own LED assembly. This site has a calculator and you can buy tons of LEDs for cheap over here.
This makes me giddy; I'm sick of the poor selection at places like RadioShack.

When I was visiting Luke in madison, There was person who had made a physical away box that he mounted on his door. He put a bunch of different LEDs in a mount and then put words like away, at class, out to lunch, and come in next to them. It was quite clever I thought, but aweful nerdy. I wanted to do it, but I don't really see it as being benificial because not enough people come looking for me at my dorm room.

I made my first purchase from these guys recently, and can't complain. The LEDs come in little static-proof color-coded bags, the bonuses are nice (two huge blue LEDs and some smaller UV LEDs), and the shipping and overall price was great. I paid less than $40 and got 60 lights, 10 resistors, and 20 ft of wire.

Now if I could only find a decent soldering iron.
