I have bought several of these LED's and each one is working perfectly fine on a CR2032 coin. Is it OK to use a rechargeable coin cell eg. LR 2032 which is approximately 4v ? Or will I have to use a resistor? I do have an LR2032 charger.
Asked by: Malcolm
Good afternoon,
Many thanks for the query.
looking at the technical specifications of the LED, it can take between 2.5V - 5V and would not require a current limiting resistor.
Many thanks

Will the flicker led operate to a reasonable brightness if powered by a coin battery , if so which would you recommend . It's to go into a greeting card so the thinner the better ! Thank you for your help.
Asked by: Elaine
Hi Elaine,

Thank you for your question, this LED will indeed run from a coin cell at a reasonable brightness. The most common coin cell we see used with these are the CR2032 Coin Cells our code 2262.

Best regards

Can you give an indication of lifespan of these LEDs please, and how dependent it would be on the voltage used.
Asked by: Neil Bollen
Hi Neil,

Thank you for your question. LEDs do not work quite the same as light bulbs meaning they do not really have the same sort of life spans. You should easily be able to get 5-10 years out of an LED provided you supply it the correct voltage.

For this one you can supply it with 2.5V to 5V so anywhere in that range should be fine. If you go above that range you will need to build in resistors to prevent damage to the LED, but this should not affect it's life span.

Best Regards

What voltage or voltage range are these LEDs intended to operate on? (I don't mean forward voltage drop). I would like to see the manufacturer's datasheet if possible.

Thank you
Asked by: Howard

The LED will turn on at around 1.8V’s however it is very dim, it becomes more visible around 2V and becomes most clear at around 2.5V’s. The maximum voltage the LED can take is 5V.

If two or more of these flicker LEDs have power applied at the same time (e.g. if there were several wired in parallel), would the flicker effect be synchronised across all LEDs?
I assume they would eventually drift out of phase anyway if this was the case, but for my application it would be better if they all did their own thing from power-up.

Is the flicker effect random or is there a visible cycle to the flicker pattern?

Many thanks,
Asked by: Martin Abbott

The LED’s all power up at the same time but they appear to go out of sync straight away, so they all end up flicking at different times. There is a pattern to the flicking but it isn’t obvious to look at, so it does appear random.
