Where can I get replacement LEDs to use with the KidWind SimpleGEN?

There are two LED types included with the KidWind simpleGEN, order code KW-SGEN, $54, a 10 mm red diffused LED and a 5 mm bi-color LED that appears white when not in use. Vernier does not sell replacements for the LEDs, and they are not covered under our standard 5-year warranty, as they are considered to be consumable items.

Since LED bulbs are generally very inexpensive, it is easy to purchase replacements. Here are some recommended sources:
