Hello!

I often struggle in my home office which does not get a ton of sunlight to find a daylight bulb that is bright enough without a flicker. Any recommendations? I prefer LED.

Thanks!

Triangle (brand name) 100 watt equivalent 5000K daylight LED bulbs provide a ton of light. And they don't flicker even on an Insteon dimmer.

Do you mean it is dimmable? If so, that would be great! Certainly what I am looking for.Thanks!

Yes, they're dimmable. I was somewhat amazed at the lack of flicker down to less than 20% after years of trying different brands. We use them in our kitchen and run them full on only when we're cooking and cleaning. I found them at Amazon. Info for your convenience, I have no other incentive to mention the brand and seller

Great!Thanks for your recommendation!I'd like to have a try.
But do you have a better way to test if a new bulb has flicker or not? I usually realize it until it has been used for a period of time and my eyes hurt.
