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

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Work easily with microcontrollers
the "icon" text can be easily removed, and you can easily glue paper over back scale to change it
Cons:
None
Cleaned the cases with eucalyptus oil to remove sticker then windex to clean them nicely.
Other:
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
Bottomline:
Great product for all kinds of displays
