Wonderful – iCON Current Flow VU Meter (500uA) Reviews

Work easily with microcontrollers
the "icon" text can be easily removed, and you can easily glue paper over back scale to change it
Cleaned the cases with eucalyptus oil to remove sticker then windex to clean them nicely.
Im using these with a MSP430 to create a clock, however i have also used them with my netduino and my arduino :)
Just connected them in series with a resistor > 500 ohms and your all good :) i used a potentiometer to allow adjustment of response curve. i also added a small ceramic cap across the output (to ground) to filter the jerkiness of lower PWM settings
Great product for all kinds of displays
