hello hooper! i decided to try and get to know my hoopcity friends. so first off happy december, yay i love this time of year. not the coldness but the playing in the snow part hehe. your one led pic looks like theres a disco ball around you. happy hooping and keep it up!
hmmm, maybe that was my problem--too much power at once with only 1 led. thought never occurred to my limited brain!
(altho, it seems odd that ive hooked up many leds individually that are rated less voltage (the solids, flashing RGBs) that dont blow up.)
i kinda figured if i connect them in parallel that it didnt matter how many i had hooked up.
geez, i wish i knew more about this stuff!
anyways, im gonna get a voltage meter tonight to test my batteries just incase, and then ill try and string 5 up to the battery and see what happens.
i sure hope i dont blow out another bunch of leds! wish me luck!!
thanks again, benaequee, youre always so nice to help me out with this stuff!
im the one that you helped out with info to order leds, etc in your posted discussion---
--Just finished making my LED Twins!--
i had a problem yesterday, so i hope you dont mind if i ask you about it.
i ordered those firefly leds from lighted lifestyle and started to build my hoop. i hooked up one firefly to a 3.6V battery and it blew!! acccording to lighted lifestyles specs on their ebay page, (Forward voltage: 3.5-4.5 Forward current: 30mA) i dont think that should have happened. im scared to blow up any more (they are pricey!) so i wanted to ask you if you used any resistors with your 3.6V battery and fireflies? im a little baffled as to why the led blew, ive hooked up leds that have a lower voltage rating to the 3.6V battery and they dont blow. im not sure what to do. ive asked lighted lifestyles and they never reply to emails, so i thought id see if you had any thoughts or suggestions since youve used these leds with success.
oh bummers I'm leaving when your gettting back lol we will miss eachother... what are some great hooping spots out there??? pls tell me, I will go to Miami for a day but I think I will mostly be in the Orlando area
