Guys

only trouble was that they came on dim.

What voltage LEDs are they scott?

Also do they have resistors inline or are they just on bare wires?

Hey troy

not sure about the voltage but each one of them has a resistor on the '+' wire into it.

Without knowing what voltage they are exactly its a bit hard to work out. Most likely they are 3v LEDs with a resistor to work off 6v.

I would try hooking them all up in parallel (+ve to +ve, -ve to -ve) and see how they go.

If you hook them up in series (+ve to -ve to +ve to -ve etc) would make them run dim.
