Inexpensive and abundant LEDs

Cj Xmas 03 White Led N Globe LilExcellent guide on procuring LEDs from a cheap and plentiful source – “They come disguised as “Christmas Lights” – the “Forever Bright” line is especially good. And they are the subject of this article. Why bother? Cost. A string of 75 BLUE LED lights costs $10 on sale – and up where I am there’s a $5 rebate per string for “Energy Saver” lights. So that’s five bucks for 75 LEDs – or about 7 cents per LED for the expensive BLUE ones. Cheap.” Link.

    or you can buy like a 100 on ebay for $10 , no rebate and no tedious work getting them out of the string
