    Hello to all.

    I did a forum and google search.
    Couldn't find an answer to the question.

    How do you attach a lens to a 3w LED chip??

    Do not want to mess up if I maybe only have 1 change to do it right..

    Thanx

    Rather use Locktite Stik & Seal or Pattex RTV. There's one from Glue Devil also, but I forget the name.

    You don't want to use something like an epoxy or Super Glue with relevantly low smoking point or a conductive thermal adhesive near your solder pads.
