I've been busy at work on my AMANDA-LDR based rover, making alot of progress. But I've noticed a problem with some of my superbright LEDs. They dim. When I fire one up, it will be fairly bright, but will quickly start getting dimmer until it's not emitting any light at all. If I wait 30 seconds and fire it up, it will still be fairly dim. If I wait 5 minutes and try again, it will be bright, but will still dim. This is consistant with multiple power supplies (picaxe, direct V). Does this mean the LED is just giving out? I hope not, since I've already got it superglued and wired to my chasse ...
