I'm looking for 20 bright RGB LEDs for a project. Each will go inside a 3" Japanese paper lantern. I tried the LEDs that come in the Arduino Starter Kit and they aren't nearly bright enough for this.
While we are at it, I've bought some cable at RadioShack that I'm planning to use with these LEDs. How far will I be able to go with it?
I'm thinking that I will need to go some 2 or 3 feet for some LEDs and 6 to 10 feet for others. Will I run into any problems with these lengths?
The side of the cable reads "E202888 AWM 1007 20AWG 80°C 300V VW-1".
I read about millicandela and lux but the Newark page doesn't seem to even have that unit when you are filtering their product list.
