Depends. How much money ya got?



Ok. well as with ANY electrical system there is a NEGATIVE and a POSITIVE.

Positive being the JUICE - POWER
Negative being the GROUND

Both must be connected to the source/light with good connections otherwise they will not work.

These are basic rules of power stuff.

NOW certain LED"s i think have voltage restrictions, and stuff. So ur gonna have to find someone who knows their stuff. OR u can go into radio shack explain what u need and maybe they could help you.

I aint no expert at this BY ANY MEANS.

Just sharing what little i know. Maybe this helps.

Gene,

You kill me.

LEDs have 2 leads. A Anode which is possitive and a Cathode which is Negative.

When you buy an LED look at the package for orientation.

When using a Battery the Positive side or the RED wire goes to the Shortest lead.(In most cases) The Negative or Black wire goes to the lLongest lead.
Usually the is a Resistor in series with the LED to protect it from too much current.

If you use a pulse to the LED this is not necessary.

If you would like help pm me.
