I've bought LEDs from this vendor before.. They arrived (in around 3 weeks) and were okay for everything I used them in.

(I'm not a high volume buyer)

The main problem for me is to choose (or order a custom) a proper LED driver. Most of them mulitmode or continous, but i need single-mode.

Ok. The scheme will be with Luxeon Rebel (as the brightest LEDs i've found). Not sure about form-factor, need your advice.

Drivers will be simple constant current, one per one LED, LEDs are in series (4 LEDs per circuit). Need to select the driver.

May be somebody know how to make circuit with low-current blinking LED as relay for flashing?
