Anyone used these LED push button switches

I have 3 to be wired up. What resistor do i need for each one.
It has 6V stamped on the side of it.
Ive looked online and managed to find some other similar switches that say the LED's are 15mA

Agreed with the above though, try the 750ohm first and measure the voltage across the LED terminals with a multimeter. If you get a reading around 5-6v then you are right. If its 2.5-3v then you can try a lower value resistor for a bit more brightness.

I bought one of those and wired the LED straight to my light circuit. Works like a charm!

Will start high and work down. I dont want them bright, so will prob stay high.

I Think when they were wired up, they required 2 relays per switch to make them go from Blue (turned off) to Red (turned on)
They are definitly worth it tho.

Grab em from Performance-PCs pretty cheap.
Just for those who are interested
