How many LEDs in series can be connected to a single arduino port. I don't need to do anything special, just power a lot of LEDs in series or parallel (about 20 - 30). They are going to be connected to a port just to turn them off or on. How much can the arduino handle? thanks!
2 tops if they are red.
You can wire a bunch in series/parallel and turn of/off with a single transistor an Arduino IO pin can control easily tho.
AOI514 from digikey.com will work well.
