      Does not meet spec - NOT 5000mcd

          Comments about RadioShack 10mm Red LED:

          I have used this LED before and it performed well. The latest unit I purchased did not meet the luminous intensity requirement of 5000 mcd at 20mA. To verify proper operation, I measured the current through the LED and the voltage across across the LED during operation.

          Great Solar tracker sensor

              Comments about RadioShack 10mm Red LED:

              This device has the highest output I have seen for use as a Solar Tracking sensor. Connect it between the base and emitter of a small NPN transistor such as a 2N222. Connect a 5.6 MegOhm resistor between the collector and +5 volts. The circuit will easily detect the changing light level at dawn or dusk.

              It also makes a great sensor for a tracking solar panel system. The narrow beamwidth of the lens allows you to point two of these at a right angle to each other to track the sun.

                    Comments about RadioShack 10mm Red LED:

                    I have used what is possibly the predecessor to this part, the Archer 276-086. The package has the following specs:

                    Peak emission wavelength: 660 nm
                    Light output: 5000 mcd @ 20mA
                    Forward voltage: 1.85V

                    Absolute maximum ratings:
                    Forward current (continuous): 30 mA
                    Forward voltage: 2.5V
                    Reverse voltage: 4V
                    Power dissipation: 75mW

                    In the old days, Radio Shack's electronics were packaged under the Archer brand.

                          The spec sheet should list I-forward, V-forward and candelas of light output (having Cd in feature is okay, but, additionally, belongs in Tech specs.

                            Very good light source for low voltage applications, but the leads pulled out of the back of the LED very, very easily.
