#1

Looking for suggestions on where to buy bulk LED’s Thanks


#2

How many?
digikey? mouser? sparkfun?

Maybe a good question: where do you live? Shipping cost will be part of the price, so that’s a good thing to start.

If you live in Europe then I know a good distributor.

Yes I am in Los Angeles area

I have used

http://www.newark.com/

for bright clear blue leds.

I have searched other online places (mouser, etc) and newark had the best price at that time.

Also make sure to check all leds after you get them. I had a problem with Mouser before. I have ordered 40 leds of one color and got 25 right and 15 of different color.

eBay, get them direct from taiwan/hongkong/china.
