Before now the only way to get the LEDs needed for such kits as the MG Qan[T] and 00 Raiser was to go through the parts department in Bandai Japan--frankly, it's insane that it was ever this way. Probably due to that realization coupled with the enormous demand for these LEDs, Bandai has opted to sell them in this great 2 unit set. This set is for the green LED used in the kits linked below. Each unit takes 2 LR41 watch batteries (sold separately).

Constant flickering or no light at all
I probably should have read more beforehand, as this appears to be a consistent problem. I ordered 2 sets (4 total units) for us in the MG 00 Raiser model along with the 1 unit that comes with the model itself. Of the 5 LED units, not a single one will stay on consistently. Instead, they will either be dimly lit, not lit at all, or will flicker on and off until I shut them off out of frustration.
No amount of fiddling seems to resolve the issue, and I didn't much feel like opening up the units to see if it was a wiring issue I felt comfortable solving. Sometimes firmly holding the unit together will give a constant light, but as soon as the unit is placed in the model it typically shut off or started flickering.
All in all, they make the model look great for the 2 minutes I had all of them working, but not worth the money or the hassle for the real end product.

I was excited to put this dealy-bob into my Sazabi Ver.Ka, but it just won’t stay lit fam. It flickers, so I tried to put E-tape as a spacer to see if the batteries had a poor connection but I had the same problem. Tried tweaking with the actual connections by bending them outwards— still no luck. I could’ve bought a 12 pack of beer with that money. Oh well.

Requires slight modification
There is a small connector (right inside where you put the battery) that doesn't stick out far enough. You can easily fix this, look up on YT how to modify with simple pliers or tweezers. I did it and now I don't have any flicker and it took just a few seconds to do.
Criticism is that the batteries do not last long and the implementation of the kits (such as the GN-0000+GNR-010 / XN 00 XN Raiser where putting the backpack on is a feat in itself and you'd like it to stay on for a while) make turning it on and off a pain. This is why I am considering going third party (also for cost savings).
