Resistor - Pack of 4

A resistor is an electrical component that stops or slows (resists) electrical current and lowers voltage in a circuit. It's generally a passive ingredient in a circuit; it doesn't actually do anything to the circuit except the rather important feature of allowing you to set the current and voltage. In short, it gives you control over your circuit.

Different colored LED lights need different types of resistors.

180 ohms (good for white, green and blue LED lights)
270 ohms (good for red and yellow LED lights)

Each resistor is 1/2 watt with a 5% tolerance. Each comes with a low noise, flame resistant, non-flammable coating.

Sold as a pack of 4.
