Default l.e.d'*

I somehow disconnected the l.e.d to my alarm and when I replaced it with one from radio shack it wasn't bright at all. Does anyone know where I can get a good replacement that bright?

I'd google the maker of the alarm system, contact them and ask for another one.

Thanks guys, I wasn't sure what I could use but there seems to be plenty of options. I'll probably get some bright 3mm.

you are going to need resistors too. assuming you dont have any and the line you are using isn't already lower voltage.
