Thread: LED bicycle headlight
picon face BY : Patrik Husfloen email (remove spam text)

It seems from the Bulb life thread that there are a lot of drivers ICs for white LEDs
is that for any special reason? I mean your regular red LED never had a driver IC..
are the white LEDs "special" in some way, or can I drive them with a series resistor like I do with all the other LEDs?

I'm not sure how many LEDs one would need to give sufficient lite..I was thinking 4 maybe..and a couple of red ones for the tail light..
you mentioned NiCd, I thought those could only be recharged when they were completly drained or you pretty much ruined them.

I wasn't part of the Piclist at the time for thsoe free cells :/
