• Mini Photocell (5mm)

A mini photocell is a 5mm sensor for light, in which it can sense the amount of light it’s being exposed to in order to change resistance. They are very helpful in being ambient triggers that do things depending on the light as it changes. A photocell has many other names that still refer to the same thing such as: photo resistor, photoconductive cell, CdS, or photodetector.
