This question already has an answer here:
I'm working with 6 LEDs in series, which are rated at:
- 3V Typical / 3.2V Maximum
My power supply is:
- 3A Maximum
According to my calculations:
- I'd need a 50 ohm resistor at 3V
- I'd be in the negative at 3.2V.
Because my target resistance with the LEDs alone would be below the maximum LED voltage specification, do I need any sort of resistor at all?
Is this the appropriate use case for a 0 ohm resistor?
I plugged in the array last night for around 20 seconds or so, and the wiring seemed to get rather hot which is a bit worrisome... The LEDs however, didn't appear to be brighter than when connecting one at the appropriate resistance.
