The dollar store had a package of 2 flicker candles. I opened on up to see the internals. I am a little confused. There is no flicker circuit. Only on/off switch wired to led. Anyone know how this works? Very simple.

I have not seen leds that flicker on their own. Anyone know where to buy them in bulk?

The circuitry is in the LED itself, here are some example links if flashing LEDs and closeup photos.

LEDs - Gallium Indium Nitride UV, violet, purple, blue, aqua, turquoise, green, white. Also Gallium Arsenide and others. New LED MUSEUM! GaN, InGaN, SiC, GaAs, GaP, GaAlP, ZnSe, flashlight, flashlights.

My suspicion would be that for a 'bulk' build of some sort...it would be better to buy normal LEDs and wire them into a flicker circuit of some sort. Rather than ganging a bunch of these with individual flicker built it.
