Rated 5 out of 5 by NOT for led dimmables Varilight do not recommend these for dimmable LED lighting, they do have a range of "treiling edge dimmer" that are recommended. For some reason these dont show up in the screwfix web list but can be searched for and bought! 28 Nov 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Use with LED lighting Some of the more modern spotlights are Dimmable LED types. These are very low energy so are good at reducing your bills. However, these dimmers cause these LEDs to flicker at certain brightnesses. I first tried different LED spots, but this made no difference. I thought it might be a faulty dimmer so replaced them like for like. This made no difference either. Only when I fitted a different manufacturer of dimmer did the problem get resolved. The may work fine with incandescent spotlights. Hope the info is useful. 24 Nov 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good looking switch. However, when I attempted to use it with three 6.5W Dimmable LED lamps it failed to work correctly. A shame really. 6 Mar 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value dimmer Can't ask for much more than this, it's a bit plasticky but works perfect, and looks good too with a chrome knob and clean back panel that hides the screws. Best bit - the price. 26 Mar 2012

Hello Baggers,
Thank you for your question. This dimmer is not compatible with LEDs. The dimmer in the same finish that is compatible is Cat No. 4419F. It can do up to 10 LED lamps (max 100W).
