Changing the LED on my reservoir

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

The LED that came with my Rasa RX360 kit is blue and I want to change it to red. I went out and bought a new LED from radioshack, and I just wanted to confirm it was the right one before going through all the hassle or potentially hurting something. It's a 5mm Wide-Angle Red LED 1.7 volts, 20mA, 800mcd. Is that going to be okay? It's hooking into two of the pins on a 4-pin connector.

Under the heatshrink by the LED there is a resistor, so you have to solder the new LED to that resistor, or buy another of the same type.

Ah, yeah I noticed that little bump. So that's what that is. I'll be sure to use it or get a new one. So as long as I make sure to use that, the LED I got will be fine?
