vled.com has some. They also carry some bi-color (red/blue) Leds. But the site seems to be down. I have used lsdiodes.com, and also recommend it.

I was just looking at LSdiodes.com and they dont have any red LED's higher that 3.3 volts so the LED's there are pretty much useless.*sigh* "The search continues" :cry:

you put a resistor infront of the led to lower the voltage getting to the LED.
For a 5v power source and a 3-3.5V leds use a 100 ohm resistor
