    Pros Nice for DIY projects, powerful (invisible) light Cons: No instructions, some vague specifications. Easy to fry. Other thoughts: I used it with a 450mA flashlight. (Swapped leds) And its working super good for a room. Probably a 1A driver would perform better and with a convex lens work at I... Read more

    Pros: Small, powerful, easily mounted, bright Cons: Needs high current at low voltage (but see below) OtherThoughts: Nice bright LED, at least for an IR camera. With your normal eyes you only see a faint red glow (do not look into the LED directly!). I drive it with 1.75A, voltage is then 1.66V 5... Read more

    Throws off a lot of infrared light Gets very hot Need high thermal rated resistors High current compared to normal leds Used to make a sensor bar for my wii that runs off the computers USB port. Pretty sure the power requirements are way out of the usb spec, so I don't know if the led isn't at or... Read more

    The performance from this LED is amazing! I wired this to a 2 volt sealed lead acid battery as suggested by dav850, but lost my nerve, as the battery was brand new and reading about 2.36 volt open-circuit, so I opted to limit the current with 5 x 5 Ohm resistors in parallel (they were only 1 watt...

    Very bright infrared LED. Well it is bright on camera. with naked eye you can see only little red and nothing else. But you you see through camera, you can see it is very bright. It is bright enough to pass through my finger and it looks like x-ray! :-)). It is not 100% invisible so you can see -... Read more

    very bright infrared led well, it is not really brigt because it is invisible for the human eye, but it is not invisible for almost all ccd or cmos cameras and that is how I tested it. Cheap, really cheap it is an emmiter of invisible light but when it is on, you can see than ir turns a little no... Read more
