Im gonna be putting some LEDs in my clear case, and I really want them to shine through, so what is the brightest LED I can get out of a 5mm diode?

Thanks in advance,

Dan.

I think it would probably be the super bright white leds that are used it flash lights.
Hey maybe you could take a couple of key chain led flash lights apart and hook them up to the 3.3v source. It is just a thought. beerchug.gif rolleyes.gif

Personally, I wouldn't suggest getting anything over 6000-7000mcd. Anything else is too bright.

I agree with gamerguy. But to answer your question, the highest practical led is 23,000mcd, although there was a post about one recently that was like 380,000mcd or something rediculous.
