Clear 'Piranha' Super-flux RGB (tri-color) LED (25 pack) [Common Anode]
Clear 5mm tri-color LEDs with separate red, green and blue LED chips inside! Nice bright indicator or illuminator, and fun to color-swirl. 80 degree viewing angle. You can plug these into a breadboard diagonally
These are Common-Anode type which means you connect one pin to 5V or so and then tie the other three legs to ground through a resistor. Adafruit carry and use CA more than CC because multi-LED driver chips (such as the TLC5940/TLC5941) are often designed exclusively for CA and can't be used with Common-Cathode.
