    Default What capacitance to filter out LED nightlight 60 Hz flicker for grandmother clock?

    This Walmart nightlight has two flat LEDs shining up into its clear plastic diffuser.
    The diffuser easily slips off and the 2700 K light is nice for shining down onto the clock's chains, weights and pendulum.
    But there is flicker!!
    Any idea of capacitance to add to filter out the flicker?

    Thank you.

    Are you operating it on a dimmer switch circuit? LEDs not labeled as dimable will flicker, or the one you have may be defective.
