Would I be able to change the bulb in this to a Multi Colour LED or would I need a different PCB board? I know you sell the multi colour usb lamp kit,but are the PCB boards the same?

Hi Stephanie, The PCB used on the white USB lamp kit and the colour USB lamp kit is exactly the same, however the white USB lamp kit has a different resistor to the colour changing lamp kit. It would be easier to purchase the colour changing one rather than swapping the resistor and LED in the white version.
Hi, Which led mount would be suitable to mount the LED in both the 2131 & 2132 kit's i.e what dia are the led's? Many thanks, Ian

The LED’s that are used in these kits are both 5mm in diameter, so the most suitable LED mount would be the Panel Mount LED Clip 5mm
Product code 3541.
Can this be plugged into a USB adapter to then plug straight into a wall socket?
Posted byon Monday, 13 October 2014As long as the output is 5V, check on the label of the USB adapter.
Hi, is it possible to power this kit with batteries?
Posted byon Friday, 1 August 2014Yes, 3 or 4 AA batteries will work. 4 will be brighter and last longer.
