Was just as bright when powered by my phone, I just couldn’t take the picture then. It turns out this chip is an excellent LED driver because it’s self current-limiting at about 15mA. That means if you put more than 3 of the same LED in parallel you don’t really need resistors and you can’t overdrive/overheat them because they all self distribute the current among themselves. It doesn’t matter that the VOUT voltage (3.1V) exceeds the forward voltage of the LEDs (2V) because of the current ceiling. More than this many LEDs and it starts to noticeably dim.
