    Quoted from shovelhed:

    Well im looking for these guys since all of our great vendors stopped selling them. They were perfect for pop bumpers as they weren’t blinding. They where the 4+1

    You tried Comet Crystal Fan?

    Yes Paul, they are not even close. No knock to comet just a different Led. They provided a even glow similar to a incadesent. Crystal fan is blinding to my eyes.

    I might have some. I'll check and if I do, they're yours. Any specific colors?

    Hi guys, thanks so much for all your comments, I hadn't realised the topic would generate so much interest

    I'm not sure how relevant it is that it's my first post in 13 years, anyway at least it was a good one!

    I've connected with Sonny Chen who seems pretty genuine (at pains to emphasise they are high quality) and the prices are pretty good, so I'm going to take a punt and order some direct. The cheapest LEDs are $19 and cheapest but longest shipping cost is $18.

    I'll be happy to do a 2nd post on here when I receive them....

    US$ 0.19 for one bulb- sorry!

    In UK cheapest bulbs are $0.45

    You're paying 37 cents a bulb if you just buy 100 though.

    Curious to see what you get. Imo big difference in bukbs good enough to resell and bulbs people who want to go cheap on will use. These may work well for you, but not resellable for us or maybe comment for example.

    Anyone know of a good yellow LED? Foreign or domestic...

    Yellow and orange are two LED colors that always seem to suck. I have a feeling that they just can't make LEDs that emitted yellow and orange light well. I don't waste my money on those LEDs and use various types of white LED bulbs. What I end up doing is using natural white for yellow inserts, and warm white for orange inserts. If the bulbs are visible, I use a the stock condoms over a white LED bulb (e.g., yellow bulb on the slot machine of Twilight Zone.)

    Smd orange from comet is really good imo. Try the twin 2835 bulbs.
