  • Better than the 10-pack

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    A lot brighter than first generation white LEDs. Can make old devices useful.

    Consistent, unlike the 10-pack I recieved. I was hoping for at least 6 bright LEDs, it was a nice bonus to have 25 of them.

    Cons:

    Bluish tint.

    Not the brightest LEDs available.

    OtherThoughts:

    A local online store sells LEDs of this brightness for triple the price before shipping costs.

    I used these to replace the LEDs in a 3xAA torch with 6 LEDs, the difference before and after was quite pleasing. The tint is a little blue but the brightness makes up for it. Also, I had an old bike light with 3 LEDs that was useless even circa 2002, with these LEDs installed it provides dim but useable illumination.

    Bottomline:

    Nichia GS LEDs may be the current rage but these are good value white LEDs.
