    I suspect you'd be OK if the LED accepts 12v with a matching voltage battery though the only LEDs I've ever used have resistors wired in anyway apart from the one I hastily put together in Manchester.

    Hi,

    Having soldered the resistor in, I found the light to be fairly dull. As it turns out, the LED I bought had a resistor built in (so the separate resistor wasn’t needed at all), nonetheless the LED is now in the wiring loom. I’ll think I’ll put this in a build diary soon.

    Many thanks,

    Sam
