LED Calculator

Use the calculator below to determine the series resistor needed to connect various series combinations of light emitting diodes or “LEDs”. Use a resistor rated higher than the displayed power in the box below “Power (W)”.

Formula: R = (Vs – Vf) / If

Supply Voltage Vs
Forward Voltage Vf
Forward Current If(ma)
