I want to make one of these. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqXGBQ8vwLc Do any of you have a good source for a wide range of colors in a set watt? i don't care if there name brand or from china. Just looking for good price and the following colors. UV, Red, Blue, White, Green, Aqua, Blue and anything in between.
Some high lumen LED modules here too http://www.mpja.com/LEDs/products/116/
Superbright only had whites in the 3w-10w range.
mpja bombed out to. Nothing over 1W there.
mcreefer: Do any of you have a good source for a wide range of colors in a set watt?
I would imagine that ratings like brightness, rather than a specific wattage, would be the most important aspect of the LEDs but you can find quite a few different types in that power range at DigiKey. While the pricing is probably decent, I'm sure it's not the absolute cheapest to be found.
I'd search eBay. Alway a mess of choices there and you can get LEDs within those power ratings no problem, I have bought several 10W ones from vendors there.
maybe look at a store/hobby that uses those high powered leds in their 'projects'..
like the current lightsaber (prop) technology!
also..since they buyin bulk.. you probably wont find a cheaper source for individual leds like this.
single colors.. even tri & quad rebels..etc..
if you are looking for a high powered RGB type led.. I would try dealextreme.com: http://dx.com/p/3w-led-emitter-on-star-multicolored-rgb-4530?item=53
tip: color mixing does much better under the correct lens/optics..
