The developments in LED lighting is both rapid and intensive. Through the last 2 publications of LED Magazine (http://www.ledsmagazine.com/index.html), it elaborates how AC LED technology is becoming more stable.
As a pioneering OEM/ODM LED lighting supplier, we are currently also testing out the latest driverless LED lighting. If LED luminaire can indeed be operated with AC power, this would mean a larger cost savings and much easier installation. We can also eliminate the weakness link in LED lighting (THE DRIVER).
However, is this seemingly far away ambition just round the corner already? We'll test the stability of the technology and update you periodically.
Do stay tune!
