    Works under 1.5-1.7V (current consumption 300mA). Much visible red light, but it's common problem for all IR emitters. Max working temp is 80 °C (else fast degradation). It's a good solution for Nightvision cams illumination. Emitter has standart current consumption as for LED bulbs emitters - so... Read more

    This is a seriously bright source of IR! Cheap for what it puts out. Don't bother with arrays of 5mm IR LEDs when you can have one of these! None really. Well, it gets hot, like most IR LEDs. Use one of these for an IR remote! I put one of them on a breadboard and the camera couldn't see anything... Read more

    This is a very bright source of IR light. If you deal with IR for experimentation, work, etc. this is a good buy. The construction seems very sturdy and will likely handle use in a less than delicate environment. Solder pads are large allowing easy connection for even those with limited soldering... Read more

    Powerful IR emitters, it's amazing how much light they emit when viewed through an infrared camera. Also, my IR emitters came on a star instead of a 20mm board, which is a great pro! None at all If you are in to messing with IR light, pick a few of these up.

    I bought a couple of these to make IR markers, and they work perfectly for that, spreads IR pretty much equally all over the ENTIRE "positive" hemisphere of it, no datasheet :( even though they are pricey, they are just so great at IR illumination (including backlighting purposes) that...
