4.8mm Straw Hat LED Specifications

4.8mm LED Technical and Optical Specifications

4.8mm Straw Hat LEDs

LEDs are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, including the 4.8mm Straw Hat LED. We carry a wide assortment of the most common models of 3mm, 5mm, 8mm, and 10mm models.

The size refers to the outside diameter of the LED. 4.8mm Straw Hat LEDs are slightly smaller than traditional 5mm LEDs, but offer a much wider and brighter viewing angle.

4.8mm LEDs can be used anywhere where you need low power, high-intensity reliable light, or indication. They go easily into a breadboard and will add that extra zing to your project.

How To Identify LED Terminal Leads

Red LED Pictorial Showing Anode and Cathode along with Schematic Symbol

An LED has a positive (Anode) lead and a negative (Cathode) lead. The schematic symbol of the LED is similar to the diode except for two arrows pointing outwards. The Anode (+) is marked with a triangle, and the Cathode (-) is marked with a line.

The longer lead of an LED is generally the positive (Anode), while the shorter lead is the negative (cathode).
