I am a beginner in Electronics. I would like to clarify if my understanding regarding LEDs is correct.
Suppose that we have an imaginary battery with no internal resistor that provides 2 volts. Assuming that we have a LED with forward voltage and current 2 volts and 10mA respectively. The question is can we simply light the led without a resistor? My assumption is yes, since the LED will have a voltage drop of 2 volts, and the current will be 20mA.
My questions stems from the fact that there are many many sources out there, mentioning that a LED will try to gather as much current as possible and burn out in the end. This is wrong i feel or at least not very accurate. In general, the current that a LED will try to obtain is not the maximum available by the battery, but the current as specified in the i-v curves of the LED.
Also, just to note, I am not asking if a resistor is required or not in case of a battery that provides enough voltage. Its more than clear to me that it is required.
Is my understanding correct?
