Simplified Connection For Candle Flicker LEDs

Candle Flicker LED Connection Instructions

Candle Flicker LEDs are extremely popular in theatric lighting and scale model building (miniature buildings, railroad, and scale-car models). The LED requires very little energy, making them an excellent choice for battery operation.

The most straightforward connection of the Candle Flicker LED uses a pair of AA batteries, providing 3 volts (see our 2 AA Battery Holder, with an integrated on/off switch).

The chart below outlines the series dropping resistor required to limit current to the Candle Flicker LED. From the chart, match the desired LED model to the power supply option you will be using, and the chart will indicate the value of dropping resistor required. For example, a Blue Candle Flicker LED, operating at 5 volts, will require a 75 ohm resistor.
