Get this Look: Light a Cozy Cabin for Christmas!

by | Oct 21, 2022

Thank you, Jose, for sharing photos of how G12 warm white lights made the Holiday season brighter in your home.

Love the fact that these lights do not flicker. Just what I was looking for. Thanks so much .

Flicker occurs when LED lights aren’t adequately “rectified”. Or better said, the AC voltage powering the light sets or bulbs is not smoothed or rectified by electronics in the light set, bulb, or fixture.

The LEDs are flashing on and off as standard AC power is cycling through its voltage waveform. High-quality LED light strings are manufactured with rectifying circuitry at the beginning and often in the middle of the set. While flicker cannot be eliminated entirely, the effects are minimal when the electricity is smoothed by these inline rectifiers.

For more information and a lovely drawing of an electricity waveform, check out this post.
