Is a 3 watt LED bright?
LED bulbs in general are brighter than incandescent lamps and CFLs of the same wattage. A 3-watt LED bulb may produce anywhere between 240 to 320 lumens of illumination. Lumens is a measure of light. A single 3 Watt LED bulb can be equivalent to a 30 Watt fluorescent lamp.
How many LEDs can 3V power?
One 3V Coin Cell Battery can run up to 6 Sewable PCB LEDs or up to 6 leaded LEDs (listed in the link above).
What resistor do I need for 3W LED?
Basics: Picking Resistors for LEDs
|Power Supply Voltage||LED Color||Resistor (calculated)|
|3 V||Red, Yellow, or Yellow-Green||48 Ω|
|4.5 V||Red, Yellow, or Yellow-Green||36 Ω|
|4.5 V||Blue, Green, White, or UV||48 Ω|
|5 V||Blue, Green, White, or UV||68 Ω|

What is 3W equivalent to?
For example, a 3W LED is equivalent in output to a 45 W incandescent.
How much current does a 3v LED draw?
For most small LEDs it is about 20mA-25mA.
How many LEDs can I run on 5v power?
Parallel connection allows unlimited number of LEDs with addition of resistors. This is called kirchhoff’s voltage Law. So if you have a 5v power supply and each of your LEDs have a forward voltage drop of 2.4V then you can’t power more than two at a time.
