-- A Closer Look

    The close up pics are my favorite parts of reviews, so let's get snooping. The battery compartment comes off easily by pressing the clear button. The Lazer LED takes 3 AAA batteries.



    I have done my share of building projects with LED's so I easily recognized that blue shaped part that can be seen through the case. Anyone have a guess?



    Yes, it is a resistor and a color combination that I have never used before. The bands are red, red, gold, gold, which works out to a 2.2 ohms, +/-5% resistor.



    Here is a close up of the PCB and other workings, this is a very simple setup, 4.5 volt supply, a 2.2 ohms, +/-5% resistor, and the push button.



    Here is everyone's favorite picture, the one showing the product in all it's glory. Now that is some blue loving if you ask me.



    Lately, I have been hearing a lot of people complain how the LED product they own do not match, they have different wavelengths, etc... The light source on the left is the Lazer LED and the right is a 470nm 3000mcd single 5mm LED for comparison purposes.



    Here is a short video of the Lazer LED in action: Lamps Electronics Lazer LED

    Building LED devices is very easy and conceptually very simple, but it is hard to beat a compact 5 LED light source of this size. To me this product is well laid out and put together but still allows the average modder to tinker a little bit. I like the fact that they took the extra step and included a magnet for steel case mounting in addition to Velco. In addition to computer cases and whatnot, I think a lot of people will find this interesting for car uses.

    I would like to thank Li Gao from Lamps Electronics for providing their Lazer LED for review. For many of GideonTech's readers, Lamps Electronics is a very large manufacturer of Cold Cathodes and I think it is great for such a global player to expand into different areas.

Pros:

  • 5 LED's with 3 modes

  • Magnet for attaching to steel

  • Lots of light for a small package

Cons:

  • None - This product works as designed and advertised
