    Post Moonlight schematic for Bobby

    Okay using a 5.2vDC @ 800ma to drive 10 LED's here's your wiring diagram.
    You'll need 1/4W 68 ohm resistors for each LED.

    Just for good measure some detailed info
    • each 68 ohm resistor dissipates 61.2 mW
    • 1/4W resistors are fine for your application
    • together, all resistors dissipate 612 mW
    • together, the diodes dissipate 990 mW
    • total power dissipated by the array is 1602 mW
    • the array draws current of 300 mA from the source.
    Every electronic device is manufactured with smoke stored deep inside... only a true genius can find a way to set it free.
