How to make a Laser Cut LED Tea Light
Add mood lighting to any room with these flickering LED tea lights made using our own Yellow Flickering Candle LEDs. LED tea lights are an ideal alternative to lit candles thanks to being much safer than a lit flame. The LED gives out a random flickering effect at a steady current. This tutorial shows you how to make a Christmas themed tea light using our laser cutter template.

Question:

What voltage or voltage range are these LEDs intended to operate on? (I don't mean forward voltage drop). I would like to see the manufacturer's datasheet if possible. Thank you

Answers:

  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Tuesday, 15 December 2015

    The LED will turn on at around 1.8V’s however it is very dim, it becomes more visible around 2V and becomes most clear at around 2.5V’s. The maximum voltage the LED can take is 5V.

Question:

Hi If two or more of these flicker LEDs have power applied at the same time (e.g. if there were several wired in parallel), would the flicker effect be synchronised across all LEDs? I assume they would eventually drift out of phase anyway if this was the case, but for my application it would be better if they all did their own thing from power-up. Is the flicker effect random or is there a visible cycle to the flicker pattern? Many thanks, Martin

Answers:

  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Monday, 5 January 2015

    The LED’s all power up at the same time but they appear to go out of sync straight away, so they all end up flicking at different times. There is a pattern to the flicking but it isn’t obvious to look at, so it does appear random.
