These 1206 size LEDs are great for the hobbiest's parts drawer, wide enough to easily get a trace underneath the LED between the pads with DIY printed circuit boards, and large enough that you can hand solder with absolute ease.

I did a test at about 20mA; Red and Blue are very bright. White is even brighter. Green seems more of an indicator level of brightness.

I don’t have a maximum recommended current, but I would shoot for about 20 mA maximum (most LEDs are happy around that).

Remember to use a current limiting resistor, no resistor = instantly destroyed LED in most cases.

* A word about LED “brightness” or luminous intensity numbers, a lot of LEDs out there on the market have wildly high MCD ratings, but for some LEDs (IR, UV particularly) an MCD number doesn’t even make the slightest bit of sense – sellers in the markets still put a high but *usually* believable MCD number on the label, they know you can’t test the claim. In short, the number xxxx MCD may or may not be true, especially if you see very very high MCD figures. The best and really only way to see if a specific LED (or indeed batch of LEDs) is bright enough for YOUR purpose, is to buy a few and try it out. Luckily, LEDs are just a few cents!
