I need some red LED's, like the ones you use to light up cell phone LCDs (they are incredibly bright, inexpensive, and very, very tiny). Anyone know a site to find these in the US? I've Google searched, but the only sites I found selling these are in the UK, and I don't really want to pay $12 shipping for a $3 - $4 Led purchase and then have to wait for them to ship all the way over here to the states. Thanks.

i dont know about inexpensive, but if you do find some that are cheap, let me know..lol... i'll do the same for you.... right now i been getting mine from the UK or somewhere over there for waaay too much.... about $4 a piece and then theres international shipping costs... too much for me....

yeah, maybe they're not so inexpensive, but I would at least like to avoid that damn international shipping cost. I'll post if I come across a site.

Id just desolder them from old cell phones

Thanks, but like I said, I'm looking for a site here in the US because I don't want to pay international shipping (over $10) for a few LED's. Like I said, I've found sites from the UK, but I want one here in the states. Thanks anyway, though.

Want to give me one with red LEDs?

The small ones you're talking about are called surface mount LEDs. I've only been able to find them at electronic shops. Here are some places I have shopped at.Newark InOne
- Good prices.DigiKey
- Every electronic component imagineable. ($5 fee for orders less than $20
- Great place for all kinds of LEDs. (SMD LED are the small surface mounts)

Bloody hell.. they're twice as big as mine
the package I used are 0603 but 1208 will do the job. Unless you can solder to each side of an LED the size of a grain of sugar.. I'd keep away from the 0603 package. If possible look for Toyoda-Gosei (hyper bright) manufacture.. these are the best there are and do the larger case size as well. The prices on eled site are very cheap indeed compared with UK retail prices.
Toyoda-Gosei are made in Japan and sold in the UK for GSM mods.

Would you make the jewel mod for me if I paid you?
How much would you charge?

I have some of these small SMD LEDs for sale.. £10.00 for 6 (jewel) posted within UK.
THESE ARE 1.6mm x 0.8mm... SMALL

How much would shipping be if I'm in the US?
Apr 2 2003, 10:02 PM
Not being funny m8 but it's too much hastle for the costs involved.. Search for Toyoda Gosei in the U.S. or mail one of the U.S. suppliers above and see if they supply them.

yeah...mouser is one of the better US based electronics components businesses. plus, if they don't have what you want, you can call their sales number and they'll see if they can get what you want for you.

ordered from eLED....damn those prices are cheap. even with shipping I paid less than I'd pay at local electronics shop and got smaller, brighter, better LEDs. Now my external harddrive's rack's screen (RPM's of fan and Hdd Temp. display on LCD screen, rack also has alarm, programable fan modes as well as a manual fan speed knob) can be backlit red to match both the rack's and my xbox's custom paintjob as well as all my other red LED's I modded my rack and my xbox with. Now to see how fast they ship them to me. Can't wait!
