In 2009, Holiday Creations (formerly Forever Bright) will begin manufacturing their standard grade LED as full-wave rectified sets, whereas standard grade sets manufactured before 2009 are half-wave rectified. There are only a few differences between the two:
1. Full-wave rectified sets have no flickering, whereas half-wave rectified sets have a slight flicker that is barely perceived (or not at all) by the human eye.
2. Full-wave rectified sets come packaged in a bag, while the half-wave rectified sets come packaged in a box.
3. When purchased by the case, full-wave rectified come in a case of 24 sets, while half-wave rectified come in a case of 12 sets.
