So i saw some mods where they had changed the front panel LED's with blue ones. Since i'm not the best at electronics, i took a look at chapter 3 of "Hacking The Xbox" where he installs 2 blue LED's. He mentions that the LED should be 3mm and that the voltage should be around 3v. So i wonder if this LED will work?It's 3mm, 2,8-3.4v, 20mA, 2100mcd
Now regarding resistors - I find these HDD/LAN activity led's very cool, so i thought about making these aswell, but it's very hard to find the right components in Sweden. I've read most tutorials, and they have often used a 220 ohm 0,5W resistor, but i can only find 220 ohm with 0,25w (1/4). Is it possible to use any other resistor? And what LED's should i use for HDD/LAN activity?
Answers are highly appreciated.
