Diffused 5mm tri-color LED with separate red, green and blue LED chips inside! Nice indicator, and fun to color-swirl. 60 degree viewing angle. Adafruit like diffused RGB LEDs because they color mix inside instead of appearing as 3 distinct LEDs.

These are Common-Anode type which means you connect one pin to 5V or so and then tie the other three legs to ground through a resistor. We carry and use CA more than CC because multi-LED driver chips (such as the TLC5940/TLC5941) are often designed exclusively for CA and can't be used with Common-Cathode.

  • 5mm diameter
  • Red: 630 nm wavelength, Green: 525 nm, Blue: 430 nm
  • Red: 2.1-2.5V Forward Voltage, at 20mA current, Green: 3.8-4.5V, Blue: 3.8-4.5V
  • Red: 500 mcd typical brightness, Green: 600 mcd, Blue: 300 mcd
  • Datasheet

If you need some help using LEDs, please read Adafruit's "Introduction to using LEDs" tutorial for any electronics project.

Documentation and Resources:
  • Automatic Bike Indicators
  • This project uses an Accelerometer to detect when you are leaning left or right. Depending on if/where you are leaning, it will flash LEDs on the right or left of the bike's rear. Powered by an Arduino and a 12v battery pack (my case 8 AA Batteries). I have made a video on it below. Here is the code you'll need to build your own....
