As Makers, although we do sometimes like to build discrete projects, in which the beauty lies in the lack of wiring, modules and other bare Components, for all other times, it's great when our projects are nice and visible, allowing people to actually enjoy the complex project you've made. This is why LEDs will always have a soft spot in the hearts of every Maker, as LEDs not only offer a visual indication of what a project might be doing – think of Charging or Recording Indicators on mobile devices – but also provide some great visual effect to ensure your project is eye-catching and ready to amaze all onlookers.

These particular LEDs feature an Opaque Lens, which is clouded in comparison to Clear Lens LEDs, and this helps to spread the glow of the LED out in al directions, rather than having a particular focus for where the light is projected. This makes these units ideal for use as indicator LEDs and decorative purposes, as they can be easily seen from almost any angles, and tend to be more visually enjoyable than directional LEDs. Of course, as a Maker, you can do whatever you like with them, and we encourage you to really take advantage of the versatile style of Discrete LED Units like these, as they’re one of the most affordable and easiest ways to spruce up a project and bring it to life with colour.

Please Note: These units are sold in minimum order quantities of five (5), to save on unnecessary extra costs and try to give you the best possible price.
