can anyone help me in how to connect LED to 9v batt?

Recommended Posts

hello everyone.

I have a halloween costume project in mind which might constitute for some LED lights, a 9v(or any other batt) and an on/off switch. Does anyone here know about this stuff and willing to give a total n00b a hand? preferably stuff that can be purchased at a local radio shack! :)

thank you!!!

Connect them all in series, with a resistor of any value, taking care of the polarity.

If you can handle computer repair, this is simple stuff. Like was said, hook your LEDs up in series and put the switch in there someplace. You just need to make sure your power source matches up to what the LEDs are designed for, and you should get it.
