Re: Does this RGB LED really need 220 ohm resistors per color?

I am also researching this for my Raspberry Pi. The forward voltages are different from colour to colour (RGB) and manufacturer to manufacturer, best check your datasheet. Yes it will decrease your luminosity. You are correct in your assumptions with your resistor calcs but other factors also come i...
