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.
Bluish tint.
Not the brightest LEDs available.
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.
Nichia GS LEDs may be the current rage but these are good value white LEDs.
