    Im wanting start a new project and I need some High Lumen LED's. Color red I would really like them be over 100 lumens. But every where I look I keep getting search results for household lighting or cars....And asked this same question on yahoo answers and didn't get far with that. Could someone recommend some web sites? I've looked at the following web sites that were good but didn't have what I was needed http://www.digikey.com/ and http://www.superbrightleds.com/ also ebay but I really don't trust much from it.

    Red LEDs generally have far lower lumens than white or green. This is becuase lumens takes into account how the human eye responds. For a red LED to put out 100 lumens it would have the equivalent power of a green LED at 500 lumens.
