  • Amazing performance!

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: The performance from this LED is amazing! I wired this to a 2 volt sealed lead acid battery as suggested by dav850, but lost my nerve, as the battery was brand new and reading about 2.36 volt open-circuit, so I opted to limit the current with 5 x 5 Ohm resistors in parallel (they were only 1 watt each). The output was stupendous and more than able to light up an entire room. Even just bouncing the light off a white ceiling bathes the entire room in more than enough light to capture good video (will try to upload some pics or vids soon). Later I got braver and stuck a huge heatsink on and got rid of the resistors. This was when the fun really started! More than three times brighter than before. It has now been running at over 4 watt for hours!

    Cons: None so far, but we'll see, I guess. Would require a very powerful driver to get the same performance from mains power, due to low voltage.

    Other: Great buy if you want a really powerful IR light.

  • Good bright LED

    Pros: Very bright infrared LED. Well it is bright on camera. with naked eye you can see only little red and nothing else. But you you see through camera, you can see it is very bright. It is bright enough to pass through my finger and it looks like x-ray! :-)).

    Cons: It is not 100% invisible so you can see that it is on. Requires heatsing to operate...but it is normal with high power LEDs :) Hard to find driver to operate because of low voltage

    Other: Good thing as light for surveillance cams even it is slightly visible.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: very bright infrared led
    well, it is not really brigt because it is invisible for the human eye, but it is not invisible for almost all ccd or cmos cameras and that is how I tested it.
    Cheap, really cheap

    Cons: it is an emmiter of invisible light but when it is on, you can see than ir turns a little red, but no more.
    You need some sort of protection, I tested and play with it for about 30 minutes and after that my eyes were hurting (I know I should have known, but I did not think that would happen that).
    It consumes a lot of current so you need a really powerful source. and it really gets hot.

    Other: It arrived 8 days after I order it, so it was a very fast delivery
    by the way I used 8 resistors of 8.2 ohms @ 1/2W instead a resistor of 1ohm @4W and it worked fine
