    Re: LED v.s. Fluorescent lights in the garage

    It's more of an issue with dimmer switches, but as I understand it the circuitry in an LED requires very specific power requirements, and the delay is waiting for the circuitry to recognize the power is ok. LED switches hold the power momentarily so it bursts to the light and is at the proper level.

    Obviously I'm not an electrician but I saw this effect in my old house with non-dimmable LED specific switches. Prior to swapping the switch we had the annoying delay, as well as some flickering. The switch solved the problem.
