  • Flickers when used as halogene bulb replacement

    posted by hgpuke on 01/10/2011

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Has an OK color temperature, although I would not call it "warm" compared to a halogen bulb.
    Seems well built. Fits into standard G4 socket (down-light)
    The big number of LEDs make light flow more even than with fewer LEDs

    Cons:

    The bulb has a very annoying flicker when used as a replacement for a G4 halogen bulb. I guess this is because the 12V transformer is not stabilized. But I still managed to buy a LED bulb that does NOT flicker in this setup from my local dealer in Sweden, so this is definitely a problem specific to the bulb bought here at DealExtreme. Good thing I only ordered one!

    OtherThoughts:

    I think this problem could be corrected by a small capacitor, but I don't want to solder things myself. I will look for alternatives elsewhere

    Bottomline:

    Buy it only if you have a stabilized 12V transformer
