Product description:

These ultra slim, pre-mounted e-textile LEDs from Kitronik run off a 3V coin cell battery and are illuminated continuously when powered.

They have connections to which the conductive thread can be connected. These are clearly marked with '+' and '-' to indicate which is the positive and which is the negative connection.

The PCBs are double sided making the conductive thread connection very reliable (see example picture below).

Features:

  • Ultra Slim Sewable LEDs.
  • Double Sided PCBs for reliable connections.
  • Clearly marked '+' and '-' connections.

Contents:

Pack of 10:

  • Pack of 10 LEDs (supplied on a small panel, easily removed by snapping them out).

Single:

  • Individual LED (ready to use).

Dimensions:

  • Length: 15mm.
  • Width: 6.5mm.
  • Height: 2.7mm.

    Hi Jon, These LED’s are designed to be used with the electro-fashion range, so using conductive thread. They aren’t designed to be used with standard wire, however you could use crocodile clips or similar to create a circuit. It would always be beneficial to connect in parallel, this would also provide each LED with the needed voltage, and would equally divide the current across the LEDs.

    Hi Linda, By putting the LED’s in parallel you would supply each LED with 3V’s, the issue would be supplying enough current to the LED’s. The sewable LEDs draw around 20mA each, so for 40 LED’s you would need to be able to supply around 0.8A. The 3V coin cell batteries used with the e-textile item can run around 6 LED’s each so in theory you would only need 7 batteries, the 8th would increase the amount of time the circuit would run for. You might get around 2 hours of battery life before you would need to change these.

    A:

    It's best not to put them in series as they all have different resistor values to get a similar brightness when used with a 3V power supply. The resistor values are as below:

    Red: 150 Ohm

    Lilac: 100 Ohm

    Green: 47 Ohm

    Blue: 0 Ohm

    White: 0 Ohm

    A:

    The only way you could do this is to use multiple batteries, the maximum you can run from one 3V coin cell is 6 LED’s. To enable you to power larger amounts of LED’s you would need to put multiple coin cell holders in parallel and then put the LED’s in parallel.

    You would be able to use 50 of these LED’s in a piece of clothing, however you wouldn’t be able to power all 50 off one power supply. The standard way to power these LED’s is via a 3V coin cell battery, which can power around 5-6 LED’s for around 1 and a half hours of constant power based on using our product code 2262. You wouldn’t require any resistors as the boards have a resistor built into them and also the conductive thread has a small amount of resistance.

    The voltage would be fine to run the LED’s and a suitable buzzer, however you would need to check to see how much current the genie chip can output through each pin. The LED’s require a current of 25mA, and depending on the buzzer this would vary.

    You could have up to around 4-5 LED’s powered by a single 3V battery connected in parallel.

    Hi, you'd need to connect them in parallel rather than series for the battery to power them sufficiently. You would get a good few hours out of them.

    A: Hi, They should be fine to hand wash as long as they are allowed to dry out afterwards before use. I don't think water would harm them, my only concerns would be tarnishing on the pads that you sew to or the sewn connections becoming loose and needing re-doing. I've not done any thorough testing on this though.
