Where can I find a good beginnerfriendly tutorial on how to use LEDs? I got some batteries, some resistors (I think) some LEDs and some thread, and I got one of them to light up, but I think I need some more help.
How do I connect several LEDs? Do I need one battery per LED or can I connect two or three to the same battery? Can I put more than one battery in a circuit? or should I give up and leave the electronics to people who are down with Ohm and his dawgs?

The best place to find help for LED's is from the masters at DragonModz.

They not only sell, but also have tutorials, and will answer any questions you have. Smiley

Instructables is a great place for tutorials for beginners. Also if you need any help don't be afraid to contact me I'm in school for this kind of thing.
