Pre-Wired 0402 SMD LED
Many model builders and hobbyists often wish if there were a smaller LED they could wire into their models for lighting effects. In the past, there were very few options for small lights, incandescent would get hot and burn out quite quickly and LEDs were large only available in limited colors.
With the advent of smaller electronic components used in our modern devices came new LEDs at increasingly smaller sizes. The trouble with these tiny LEDs was that they were meant to mount direct to a circuit board and were incredibly hard to handle.
These tiny 0402 surface mount LEDs are pre-wired with two very fine wires – meaning these can be easily wired to any model boat, train, plane, car, spaceship or whatever else you may want to add tiny lights to. As with all LEDs, a current limiting resistor is required.
