LED Light Course

I am interested in learning more about LED lights.
How to wire them up.
Connecting to battery/ mains power source.
What resistors to use.
And more.

Thanks Sean

Adafruit’s article here - https://learn.adafruit.com/all-about-leds/overview is a good overview and primer.

Generally you won’t be connecting LEDs to mains without some kind of power supply dropping it to a safer voltage (usually 5 or 12 volts).

Thanks mate, I will have a good look at the link.
I am working on a personal project that I want to put LED’s but I would not even class my self as a novice yet.
Thanks again for the link.

As mentioned by @nogthree (at least I think that’s who it was) in slack already, the current humble bundle has a bunch of stuff from Make Magazine.

One of the ebooks is called “Make It Glow”, which might have some info worth looking at. Nothing you couldn’t find online, but if you’re interested in the other books in the bundle, it might be worth it.

Awesome I will have a look,
Thanks for the link mate.
