LED: Piranha Super-Flux vs 5mm

June 23, 2012

I was searching on the internet for any actual LED test between Piranha Super-Flux and normal 5mm High Brightness one but I couldn’t find any. For my future project I had to order some LED’s and with that I took the liberty to order some of the Piranha Super-Flux LED’s which supposedly should deliver more light.

For actual test I have used two 5mm high brightness LED’s and two Piranha Super-Flux. All four are cold white color except one Piranha is warm white.

LED’s came from website http://www.hebeiltd.com.cn which they have quite low prices compared to others, only catch is if you buy low quantity they charge you “penalty” for that.

For input voltage and current refer to the picture above, lettering in the RED provides that data

LED specifications:

#1 – 5mm High Brightness Cold White:
Color temperature: 6.000 – 12.000K
Operating current: 20mA
Operating voltage 3.2V – 3.6V
Viewing angle: 13°- 17°
Brightness: 12.000mcd – 18.000mcd

Image

#2 – Piranha Super-Flux Warm White:
Color temperature: 3.000K
Operating current: 30mA – 50mA
Operating voltage: 3.3V – 3.8V
Viewing angle: 35° – 40°
Brightness: 7.000mcd – 12.000mcd

Image

#3 – Piranha Super-Flux Cold White
Color temperature: 6.000K – 12.000K
Operating current: 30mA – 50mA
Operating voltage: 3.3V – 3.8V
Viewing angle: 35°- 40°
Brightness: 7.000mcd – 12.000mcd

Image
#4 – 5mm High brightness
No Data

All LED’s are on breadboard with 5V Voltage regulator on input. Power source is 9V battery and each LED has dedicated resistor to come as close as possible to max potential.
