Just double check polarity is correct. Wiring it backwards won't hurt anything, but you can check with any digital camera / phone. It'll show up as purple when you fire it!

Steve,
The short leg on all LEDS is negative the long leg is positive. Match it to the pin drawing I sent and you are golden.
