Dollar general has multi color LED Pens for 2 $
« on: August 20, 2003, 11:28:46 AM »

For those of you who have dollar general stores in your area I found a 2 dollar LED lit pen that has a 3 element LED in it.

 The elements are Yellow, Red and Blue but can do other colors using the combinations


  It has a flasher control circuit and runs on 3 small 1.5 volt watch batteries.

Sweet :)  I've got a Dollar General about 10 minutes away and I've been wanting to experiment with a multi-color LED for a while.  Thanks for the tip Arcsylver :)  It sounds especially cool since its already set up for batteries..  Don't have to do any wiring.

Plus, 3 1.5v batts = 4.5v... Close enough to 5v for me! :D

Anyway...nice find :)  I'll have to stop out at a dollar general some time soon to see if they're around here as well.

It's only .5v... Well within the envelope of most LED's, particularly if it's not enclosed (heat trap).
