orange NE-2 neon bulb vs. a orange LED

orange NE-2 neon bulb vs. a orange LED

Click to view full size image

As you can see here, in order to run a LED on 120v you need a 1N4007 protection diode in case if the circuit was put in the wrong way and prevents the LED from blowing up, and a 47k ohm (yellow, purple, orange) resistor to limit the current to the LED. But as for the neon it's simply a 100k ohm (brown, black, yellow) resistor in series with it. The colors are the same to match the neon's color which is orange.

But can you tell which one is brighter?

Can you tell the differences?

Save the Cooper OVWs!! Don't them down by crap LED fixtures!!!

You can't put an LED on the wrong way in an AC circuit.

I've tortured LED's in plenty of ways and 120v AC with just a resistor works fine.

You can run the Neon and LED in series.

I know that. I added the 1N4007 protection diode so just in case if the circuit was reversed.

One time I put the LED in reverse on 120 VDC power supply and it blew the lid off

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.
