Wanted: Small, low power LED

Post by MyongKrois » Wed Aug 15, 2012 12:18 pm

Hi everybody !

I am busy making a keyhangerlight, you know how hard it is to find the keyhole in the dark, for your car, house, etc..
Now, because I want it to be a challenge, I have certain parameters I wanted to meet:

- It has a led driver (PR4401) so even with low battery voltage, the LED always gets the same current. (until voltage gets below 0,9V)
- It uses one AAA battery (even old ones should be sufficient)
- I want it to use as less current as possible so I don't have to change the battery all the time...

So my question is: Does any of you know of a white LED, who runs on really LOW currents? I've found SMD LED's, but I prefer a standard 3 mm. Light output doesn't need to be much, just enough for viewing the keyhole.
I find it hard to find white LED's, the traditional colours aren't that hard to find for low current's for example 2mA instead of the standard 20mA. But white LED's seem harder to find..

I see lot's of light power here, with all the new technologies on cree LED's, and here I am asking the opposite

You can buy those 3mm while LEDs from TRONIC.LK.
