LED's from Ebay

Has anyone installed LEDs like this in cup holders etc? Looks like for $20 I can have all of the LED's I would ever want. You can get them with the resistor already in.

Sorry, the search engine would not let me search LED and other combinations came up with nothing.

Not sure those will be bright enough unless you put 10 of them in each cup holder.

At 5000-7000 mcd these LEDs are called ultra bright but are on the low side of ultra bright. Depends on what you want. You're not going to get a laser beam with these but 4 in a cup holder will give a nice glow.

btw Leroy, it says resistor is supplied, not clear to me that it is built in, although they definitely sell ones with resistors built in.

Thanks Dan, I'm just looking for accent lighting, not something to see by. It was other listings that had the resistor built in, which would make install much easier.

Would like to drill few holes, put the LED in place and hotmelt/glue in place.

Leroy, I am not sure if they have them by you, but RADIO SHACK here has the same bulbs, with the resistor in place. Just a thought.

I have been thinking of installing RED LED, better make them BLUE LED lights, don't want to think I'm hemmoraging, under my commode seat and lid the the master bathroon. That would be COOL especially in the middle of the night. What do you'all think??????????????????

Thanks WFT, I was hoping RS would have them and wanted to check before ordering off ebay. I think this is my bling project and shower install is my practical project this spring.

TMC#1 I would put one of each color in and have them flash like a disco! Or even better have an led light up each time you "hit the target"!

Absolutely beautiful statement!
