Standard LED voltage and amperage consumption

Standard LED voltage and amp consumption.

1.8 - 2.2 VDC forward drop
Max current: 20mA
Suggested using current: 16-18mA
Luminous Intensity: 150-200mcd

Ohm Law calculation: (Vs - Vf) / I
Vs = Voltage Source
Vf = LED voltage drop
I = LED current consumption

Example

Vs = 5 Volt
Vf = 2.2 Volt
I = 18 mA

Resistor required = (5 - 2.2) / 0.018 mA = 180 Ohm
