3535 is a common diode size. Means 3.5x3.5mm square.They lit up, flashed, went really dull and burnt out, I can get a Kill A Watt tester and plug them in and see what they run. I recently contacted Nicrew and asked what LEDs they were running in their fixtures. They told me 3w 3535 which I'm guessing maybe cree. This is a fast project and I really hate looking at this Nicrew hanging off the side of the tank but also fun doing something that hasn't really been done before. The Nicrew 50w has 12 blue LEDs that's why I chose the 6 in series on the PCB to put them into the bar lights to get 12. So far the acros seem to be loving the extra lighting. Also not sure what Taveros comment is about... The light is very close to the one I'm supplement with maybe a tad less but so far I'm happy with it. For anyone interested I'll post another update. Thanks for the help guys. What glue would you recommend?
It's really a generic term.
3035 SMD led has a small form factor of 3.5x3.5mm in order to protect the components to avoid moisture, so generally will take the package, easy to pick up the installation.
I'm sorry what does the Nicrew have to do with this? I missed something.
Anyways you didn't test them without being attached to the heatsink?
3w diodes heat up really fast if not properly cooled from the get go.
As to "glue" the tubes of "heatsink plaster" or similar are def. good enough.
I like Tian Mu but a pain to find, pain to figure out the right stuff and a pain to use. Dries REALLY slow.
My "research" determined it had superior thermal transfer properties to standard stuff.
About 1/10th the cost of any of the "prime" brands from Dow Corning ect.
