Wired SMD's
« on: November 06, 2013, 02:13:20 pm »
Hi, I found a place that has pre-wired SMD with resisters.  They also sell magnet wire as well:

Updated my previous post to include an eBay seller who has the super-small (1mm x 0.5mm) pre-wired 0402 SMDs in a variety of colors (neon white, warm white, yellow, orange, and red)

Check out the list.  :)

Updated my post above to include the smallest available (1mm x 0.3mm) pre-wired 0401 SMDs, flashing LEDs, flashing RGB LEDs, and bi-polar amber/blue LEDs.

I also threw in a resistor selection table for those who want a quick guide.

Check it out!  :)

Hello Gadgetron,

Since I am new to all this,if I may ask can you tell me with all these LED's you listed will they all already have the resistor soldered on the LED's?

Also what would you recommend I should start out with on LED's? I was thinking at least 20 of each when I get some money for them. I already have the LED Strip lighting so far,and I do have a iron,flux,solder and magnet wire,but I may try another wire not sure yet something like Kynar I think that is what it is called..I heard it is a little easier to work with..

When I look for LEDs on eBay, I try to get the packs that come with an equal number of free resistors.  For SMDs, I prefer to get the pre-wired / pre-resistored ones since those things are so small that I would rather not have to deal with soldering them up myself.

If you want to get your own pack of resistors, just refer to the chart and get the quantity you want.

As for the number of LEDs you want, it really depends on the project at hand.  Look at your model and plan out where you want to put lights, how you might want to attach them, how you want to orient them, what type of lights you want, what color, and then how many of each type you think you'll need.

Ebay has some treasures for sure. I found bi-color SMDs... Can anyone say 1:1000 torp launchers? BUWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I get all my SMDs from http://www.hdamodelworx.com.  Jerry has just about anything you could want in stock, plus wire, heat shrink, solder, etc.  He's really turning into a one stop shop.

 Jerry has just about anything you could want in stock, plus wire, heat shrink, solder, etc.  He's really turning into a one stop shop. he has alot of goodies   but i seem to be  buying my stuff from China  [ebay] because i get free shipping   which adds up   when i'm getting bent over  because of exchange  rate
 a 20$ items costs me 25  now and shipping [not   cheap]. not putting him down it's great  for you Americans not so good for us Canucks. It  pays to shop around
