      Why does this full bridge rectifier look different than your first example

        lol, I think I figured out why this channel is called ElectroBOOM. The dude forgets to turn off the light switch before sticking an aligator clip in there. Funniest thing I've seen in a long time.

              Why do the large LED bulbs get so hot, I notice the heatsink fins on the one you were using... I took apart one of those bulbs also, and the whole base is a chunk of aluminum heatsink. I first thought it was the regulator, but you showed a dc-dc converter. So why so much heat during operation? Thanks

                                          simplicity of the circuit (a bridge rectifier) also means that the LED will flash at 50/60 hz, causing some eye strain (compared to the more complex light bulb circuit shown right after), am I right ?

                                                Some leds are so low current that the PCB residual current is enough to make them glow

                                                            I also modified my motorcycle,. I use to be connect positif to the LED and negatif to the metal body of my motorcycle, it doesnt need to bring back to negatif accu (like you said, ground the capasitance) but its waste my accu, because when rain come,. Or just got some water, they will be turn on the low light.
                                                            The LED like saving little energy at circuit. So sometimes they glow at minimum light.
                                                            When you make static on your feet, then LED was turn on, it ussual happen on led circuit.. because led transform ac to dc. If the light led seattle at outdoor, when they broke down, the light will be blink blink it self.

The thing is, that the phase, not the neutral wire gets switched. So there is no more voltage on the LED. At some time I noticed that this glowing is an EMI phenomenon: a fluorescent tube in the same room has to be switched on. I believe that there is some capacitive or inductive coupling between both wires.
