IR Pens / Re: 782-tsal6200 Power Source?

Thanks for the advice everyone, I'm buying the supplies right now.

I'm actually going to go with the 6400 now that you told me it has a better viewing angle.

Thanks again!

Hey good tutorial.

What LED are you using in that picture?

Alright, I only need it for one presentation but I'll be testing it a lot so I'm not going to risk it.

How would I know if the resistor is working (basically since I'm fairly bad at soldering, how do I know if I made a good contact).

IR Pens / 782-tsal6200 Power Source?

I have a quick question that I can't seem to find the answer on.

After trying out the Radioshack LED's I've decided that they are probably too weak for this activity, most of the light is on the top of the LED and it's not extremely bright to begin with, so now I'm going to make a new pen with the 782-tsal6200 LEDs.

Now I noticed they have a higher voltage, so I'll probably need a resistor and a new battery (I was using 1.5 N sized) so I want to know what my options are, and what are the risks of not using a resistor?

Yes please explain a bit more, my diode I got from radio shack really sucks because it's almost exclusively front light.

Thanks, didn't actually look there. I'll have a look later tonight.
