As this is a leading edge dimmer & LED's are designed for Trailing edge. How effectively will it dim, will it prolong the life of an LED as well as a trailing edge dimmer?

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
All British General dimmers are Leading Edge type, that is correct, however not all LED lighting is automatically Trailing Edge as there are Leading Edge, 0-10V, DALI etc. compatible LED lights also available on the market.
Therefore, the key point when installing and dimming dimmable LED lighting is to ensure that compatibility of dimming type is maintained between the lighting and the controlling switch(es).

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
All British General dimmers made since the beginning of 2015 have an adjuster on the rear to allow them to be turned `down' into a 5-50W Leading Edge Dimmable LED compatibility mode.
