Good LED, needs resistor! – 10.5mm LED Emitter (10-Pack) Reviews

VERY good price, especially if you're buying bulk, bright LED.
These do need a resistor at 4.5 volts. The last bunch of white LED's I bought (from a different vendor) didn't require any resistance at that voltage. Well, I plugged one of these into the device I have my other LED's rigged up to, and promptly burnt it out. No worries, though. There are plenty more where that came from.
It would be nice to have DX supply packs of cheapie resistors to go along with these.
I love toying with LEDs, and this is the best price I've ever found these at.
