    I have a extra mobile charger with output rating of 4 v 800ma.I want it to drive 3 leds (3v 20ma ). What resistor should i use to get the desired output. Can any one please help me?

    You'll need to have a resistor for each LED and have them in parallel.
    The answer is R = V / I
    Where V is 4v-3v = 1V
    I is 20ma = 0.02
    So R = 50ohms. (51 will do nicely:) )

    That's one resistor per LED, with all of them wired in parallel.
