    A: The forward voltage on this LED is 3.1V so you need at least 3.1V from your battery. 2 AA batteries will give you 3V when they are new, however over time the voltage will drop down to 1V per cell or 2V across both of the batteries. You can probably get away with a 3V power source on an LED with a 3.1V forward voltage, but it certainly won?t work down at 2V. You might be better going for 3x AA batteries with a 68 ohm or 100 ohm series current limit resistor.

    A: Hi Paul, As the LED’s forward voltage and the micro:bit supply voltage are the same there wouldn’t be a need for a resistor as you don’t need to drop any voltage.
