My Osram 0.4W amber LED nightlight operating

My Osram 0.4W amber LED nightlight operating

Click to view full size image

The light appears less yellow in reality but still slightly more yellow then a LPS lamp. The LED in this lamp flickers 100hz probably because the capacitor ballast doesn't have a bridge rectifier, but i don't know whay.

They are only spec'd 5-15nm below a LPS discharge. Strange.

Medved said that LEDs (Of course) can only be operated in DC. So whay this lamp is flickering 100hz like while in operation? Flickering of LEDs 50hz like also encountered with LED displays on electronic appliances.

Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

dor123: It is because lack of filtering capacitor, so it runs on pulsed DC instead of smoothed.

Save the mercury lamp

Pulsed DC!? I have never heard of it. I thought that only AC current is pulsed. All discharge lamps and LEDs that operating from batteries are lit smoothed. So why LED lamps operated from the main frequency, the LEDs get the DC current in pulses if they lack of filltering capacitor?

dor123: This is the current waveform the LEDs see: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/da/Waveform_fullwave_rectifier.png

This is fullwave rectification without a filter capacitor, if they added the filter cap the LEDs won't flash.

One of our e-shops still sells these "Lunettas".
I'm going to replace this crappy Solight night light which became pretty dim after a year of use.
Is the colour really this yellow? I thougt amber LEDs were more orange than that.

Not a misoLEDist...
