To match "incandescent" light

Reviewer: from TULSA, OK USA

Taimya model paints comes in a clear water based acrylic amber. Just use enough coats to your desired color. Another quick way is an orange permanent color marker. Use some blue and green to duplicate fluorescents. I use these in model railroading all the time. Most (not all) of them will light at about 2 volts dimly. If you want them to last, don't exceed 4.5 volts. 4 volts is almost as bright as the 5 volt V-max, and you can expect 50,000 hours from them. Using NiMh cells for power, 4 AAA's (4.8 volts) with a silicon diode to drop the voltage .707 volts= 4.09 volts, the batteries die of old age before one of these LED's discharge them.
If the beam is too narrow for you (it has been for me), take some 600-2000 grit wet-or-dry sandpaper and lightly sand the end of the "lens". Good LED's, good price.

the white IS white

Reviewer: from Columbus, OH

The white light emitted by these is much closer to true white (sunlight) than any incandescent could ever be. White light has a color temperature of about 5500 degrees Kelvin, while incandescent lighting falls somewhere around 3200 degrees. These LEDs are pretty good at producing a white that is neutral without the undesired yellows or blues. BTW, it's the arc that is actually white, not the incandescent.

Very Bright Pure White!

Reviewer: from Philla

Great led WELL WORTH the money - it is extremely bright- a few of these, or even one would make a great flashlight. Thw color of light it emits is a pure white like the color of light from a camera flash. The difference between normal incadescent lights and this is that it doesnt have the dull yellow tint to it.

I wish it WAS white

Reviewer: from Vista, CA (near San Diego)

These are nice LEDs but the white is that of an electric arc rather than that of an incadescent lamp. I bought them to light a model ship and I will try dyeing them yellow---Now to find a dye that works.
