Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month
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 shining at full brightness or if my ports are supplying more power than they should, but it works great. I live in an apartment and can use the wiimotes all the way across the apartment so I don't know what the maximum range is. I'm using with sku 4626 which seems to help with the wiimote's ability to see the leds.
