Re: Let's talk batteries.

I bought these and soldered them together. The tabs are easy, but the batteries themselves are difficult. I put them in the freezer for a bit to avoid having them explode.

The RGB LEDs I found need 2.5-3 V and 20 mA to work. From what I could find, the outputs on the teensy lc are all 5 mA except four ...
