Looking for a cyan blue emitter LED.
« on: August 27, 2008, 10:42:56 PM »
   Hello To All, :)
                         Do-Clo is converting a Parks lightsaber into an Obi-Wan ANH for me. I am looking for a blue cyan emitter LED. Not the green cyan. Don has to make a custom heatsink to fit in the Parks so the LED has to come unmounted. Any info. would be helpfull. Thanks. :)

Radio Shack sells individual LEDs, just the LED with 2 prongs sticking out.  Would they work?

I am unsure about it ? ??? Don and I have been trying to find a way to keep this Obi-Wan ANH as screen accurate as possible. I asked DT for advice about this and he has not replied as of yet. Plus I do not really know much about electronics or leds. Basically this whole thing just confuses me. ???

The LEDs from RadioShack will not work. There is a big difference in a regular 5mm LED and a Luxeon LED. RadioShack does not sell Luxeons.
