Default small 110V LED source

I'm looking for some pretty small LEDs for my control panel. I have some 10mm ones but I need something around 3-5mm. I also want them to be 110V. I know I've seen them in some builds but I can't seem to find those threads.

I used the little CFC indicator lights that are at Radio Shack, they are $2 or $3 each and work great. I set them up so that they are lit when the element is on.

Those and the ones at Radio Shack are not LED but incandescent. I used the radio shack ones for my temp controller.

Thanks for the responses. Most are bigger than I'm looking for. This is what I had in mind:

You might want to search Allied Electronics, Grainger or Digikey for "circuit board indicators" that match your description. I cannot see where you would need a 110 volt LED in your assembly, but I am not an engineer. You might want to elaborate more on your planned usage of the LED.

there is no such thing as a 110v LED. light emitting diodes are all low voltage DC.

in order to run one off of 110v AC, you need an extra or external converter of some type to step the 110v AC down into 1-5v DC.


there are "indicator lamps" that work off 110v AC, but they are not LEDs, but usually neon lamps or some other type of incandesent or flourescent light. they work the same and you can use them, but if you are searching specifically for a "110v a/c LED" your not going to find one.

Thanks for the info! I don't necessarily need LEDs. Just small lights of some sort. Any idea where to get something small like 5mm or less?
