LED sizes


wondering if i was were to replace LED in my keyboard, case, and ooptical drives, what sizes should i be looking at? and wat was the voltage that i need that does not require a special volt mod that i can just plug in?

any recommended places for super bright ones that have other useful items i can buy so i can save on shipping?

shop around. eled.com, exabytesystems.com..... there wasn another one that had a weird german-sounding name, i forget though.

standard led size is 3mm, but open up whatever youre gonna replace and measure it.

i use regular blue LED for mod, (same size of old green LEDs)
i remove the old ones, and soldered new ones... thats all...

i don't know what is the voltage of them, but they lookin' bright enough...

don't forget to ask when u buy...

Most keyboards use 3mm. the mouse should be 5mm and drives usually defer from 3mm to SMT leds (small rectangular shaped LEDs. exabytes has the cheapest Ive seen.
