Thread: Brightest LEDs and Where to Get Them?

    Default Brightest LEDs and Where to Get Them?

    Just wondering if anyone knows where I could get the latest (and brightest!) white 3mm LEDs. I ordered some white LEDs a few years ago and put them into minimags with decent results (direct drive). I figure the ones available today will be much brighter and give even better results.

    Thanks!

    Here is a good source for 5mm leds. The THC3 leds are what i upgraded my surefire A2 with.

    I hope I'm not leading you to a lemon but if these use the same chip as the Jeled 50Ks then they should be plenty bright.

    They sell them in 50s also. A little more per unit, but if you don't need 100. Then again, you never know when they'll come in handy. I told myself that about 2000 LEDs ago.

    I modded a minimag 2xAA with a sanded down (body and leads) Nichia CS 5mm. It's a very tight fit, but it can be done and it's significantly brighter than any 3 mil.
