AW: [DML] Blowing fuses with LEDs.

Well, Martin has already replied to it better than I could do
it with my genglish. But the magic word is "resistor" or "current
source" already integrated in the LED.
The installation of those LED's is a nobrainer. Sold on ebay for
like nothing (but still way too expensive) - this stuff needs to
be bulletproof.
But for regular LED's you're absolutely right. Well, still you need the
resistor and therefore you would never blow a fuse...


A diode that has been reversed biased (hooked up backwards) by a voltage
higher than it's peak reverse voltage (PRV) reading will short, (turn into a
virtual piece of wire) and henceforth will blow fuses no matter which
direction you hook it up in afterwards.
