  • Nice RGB led for arduino project

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Ready to stick in your breadboard and start playing with it.
    Very bright light, and big dispersion angle.
    SMD LED and SMD is cool.

    Cons:

    pinout is wrong:
    - is cathode (OK)
    R is Blue (expected Red)
    G is Red (expected Green)
    B is Green (expected Blue)

    The individual LEDs are (relatively) far apart, so color mix is not ideal out of the box, although the LEDS are also too bright to use without a light diffuser of some sort

    OtherThoughts:

    This module requires external resistors.
    Check out SKU: 135041 (has the resistor integrated)

    Bottomline:

    Nice, very bright RGB LED to play with, together with arduino, just don't forget the resistor
