What cable to use?


New Member
I need to run some leds away from the main PCB and will need some cable to extend them to the location. Its going to be approximately 30cm in distance and the circuit will be powered by a 9v battery.

The circuit will be similar to the 555 knightrider circuit and will run up to 10 leds so a fair bit of cable needed.

Since the current will be very low you can you just able any cable you want.

Although for 10 leds, you're more than likely looking at 11+ wires (one each for positive and at least one for negative). An idea for this would be to use Ribbon cable (like the old IDE cables within computers). It would be neat and tidy if it worked for your project and it's cheap:
