1. An LED lighting device comprising:

  • an LED package comprising a plurality of LED chips electrically connected in series and power connection leads connected to respective input and output ends of the series connected LED chips;

    wherein the LED chips comprise a phosphor coating to produce a change in a color or a quality of light emitted from the LED chips, wherein the LED chips, the power connection leads, and the phosphor coating are formed or mounted to a flexible substrate that is sufficiently flexible to be formed into a cylindrical shape;

    an LED driver circuit comprising a bridge rectifier and a capacitor, the LED driver circuit configured to receive an AC voltage from a mains voltage power source and provide a DC voltage output to the LED package through the power connection leads; and

    wherein the LED chips connected in series have a total forward voltage drop that matches the DC voltage output of the LED driver circuit.
