But I'm not happy with the wire provided for connecting the cathodes to the board as it's red and ugly.
I'm looking to purchase a better substitute for it - something metallic looking (preferably silver to help conceal it) but insulated. White would work as well.
My problem? I don't know how to search for it online - I don't know the correct diameter or how to refer to the wire properly to find exactly what I need online.
What diameter is proper, and how should I refer to it when searching?
EDIT TO ADD: In the packing list from the kit (amazon.com) this was the contents description:
- Includes: Blue LED's (512 pcs) PCB board USB power cable 40P round female power pin DIP-40 IC socket x2 STC12C5A60S2 (code pre-loaded) DIP-20 IC socket x9 SN74HC573AN x9 DIP-18 socket ULN2803APG A103J Resistor 10uf electrolytic capacitor x2 crystal oscillator 22pf ceramic capacitor x2 470 ohm resistor x8 4.7k ohm resistor x2 DC005 socket Self-locking push switch Red LED 0.8 Single Conductor
I'm thinking that the bold "Red LED 0.8 Single Conductor" is the description of the wire included - so would that be 0.8mm?
