    Im currently running (4) 18,000mcd bulbs on a 14.5v power supply..
    bulbs have a forward voltage of 3.4v - 4.0v max ... 25mA
    im running a 1/4 watt 100-ohm resistor

    these bulbs are working great.. they stay nice and cool and provide decent light.. but they are just some cheapies from hong kong and im looking to replace them with some quality, long lasting bulbs that provide much more light.. Any suggestions would be great guys! thank you!

    best regards
