LED Strobe Lights are used in devices which are used to generate regular light flashes. These devices can also be known as a stroboscope. The word strobe came from a Greek word ‘strobos’ which means the ‘act of whirling’. The flash lights get their energy stored in batteries or direct supplies with capacitors.  But in recent times it has been noticed that the strobe lights get their energy from the main electricity supply which does not need any capacitors. However a strobe which is used without the capacitor storage can discharge the main voltage supply once it has been fired.
