As I pack orders, I find LEDs that have been supplied to me with bent leads or, in some cases, some of the LEDs from a box might have tarnished leads. I put these in a tray and wait until I have enough, then offer them as a grab bag at a bargain price. I also throw in sample LEDs that I decide not to stock, as well as end-of-line items.
Most are narrow angle 3, 5 and 10mm types (the most common LEDs), but there will be a few others, maybe wide angle LEDs or RGB LEDs. There may also be some standard brightness LEDs in there as well.
They are all brand new LEDs, just most of them have bent leads (some are bent close to the case, but should straighten easily enough). Whatever is in there, the price is a bargain. A great way to get a selection of superbright LEDs for experimentation and projects.
This bag contains around 150 LEDs (some of them standard brightness, but most are superbrights), plus there are also a large number of 10mm green and blue and some clear tinted 5mm standard brightness greens. There's also at least 30 5mm 4-pin RGB LEDs.
But what makes this bag a real bargain is that it contains a bag of 20 Nanjg 101-AK-A1 five mode, 1050mA linear drivers for torches. They can be used for torch conversions or for driving power LEDs from battery voltages up to 6 volts. The driver supposedly has the following modes: Low (5%), Medium (30%), High (100%), Strobe, SOS but by soldering pins 3 and 4 together on the on-board microcontroller you can exclude the last two annoying modes to leave you with just low, medium and high. Note that we haven't tested this, but there's plenty of info on the web about these drivers.
And, lucky last, there's a 5 metre roll of warm white LED ribbon that suffered some crush damage. It still works fine, you just need to flatten it as you unroll it.
